Less than half a metre of SE wind swell lapping against the MHL Sydney buoy, so not too surprising that Dee Why looked microscopic from the RealSurf crow’s nest at 0730. Ah well, pretty much in line with expectations. It’s hard to see any prospect of an improvement today.
I guess one shouldn’t complain because it’s been a pretty consistent winter even so.
The forecast models and the Bureau agree that we might have a brief little south pulse tomorrow morning before it fades back to flatness. Several of the models then show a nice little pulse for Thursday at spots that face directly south. And then it drops back to micro as we roll into the weekend.
Been caught up in other matters for the last few days, so I’m hoping to be back onto my crowdfunding set up chores today…
A high pressure ridge over the western Tasman Sea is weakening and a cold front will bring gusty northwest to southwesterly winds along New South Wales coast today. Winds will ease briefly later on Tuesday as another cold front is expected to bring a gusty change during Wednesday and Thursday.
