Once again I go to bed thinking there won’t be anything much left in the morning, and I’m wrong. Swell’s not big or anything, but there were chest plus sets at Dee Why beach and I even saw a little burbler at the point. Swell’s SSE @1.5 metres with the power setting sitting just under the 11 second mark. The Bureau tells us it’ll be sunny and westerly all day. They also say the swell will decrease steadily, so if you have the option, I’d be going as early as possible to get the best of it.
Tide’s high at 0750 and will be back to low at 1350.
From the shape of the forecasts we could still have some little waves tomorrow and then maybe another perk as a brief south pulse arrives on Saturday. Hey, it’s spring, I’ll take anything Huey wants to send us.
Hey, you know what? I’m wondering when you’re going to get on board with the crowdfunding drive? 🙂 A couple thousand people will use the site today, so it’d be brilliant if at least 1% would make a pledge. Am I being too hopeful? You decide!
Have a great day and go well with all your plans.
A low pressure system centred near the far southern New South Wales coast is moving southeastwards and generating windy conditions along the coast. Otherwise a trough over northeastern New South Wales moves east. Following the trough a weak high pressure system will drift over NSW resulting in lighter winds over the weekend.
