Well, that little low that made life windy and rainy along the far north coast a couple of days ago seems to have sent us some east swell. This morning it was around the two metre mark out at sea. Thanks to a healthy 12 second period, it was delivering solidly overhead bombs to Dee Why. The beachy looked a bit hectic to me and the point isn’t really optimal in an east swell. I’d guess there will be more interesting activity at other beaches.
Tide will be low at 1025 and back to high a touch after 1700.
Winds were WNW this morning and according to the Bureau, should gradually move more to the north.
This swell won’t last long, but it should be delivering fun stuff all day before fading back to small overnight.
Have yourself a great Wednesday!

A complex low pressure system currently located off the southeast Queensland coast weakens as it moves slowly over the Tasman Sea resulting in winds easing this morning along the New South Wales north coast. A high pressure system over central New South Wales extends over into the Tasman Sea later on Wednesday, ahead of a cold front that will strengthen winds along the south coast on Thursday and Friday.
