Pretty small this morning

Posted by: on April 2nd, 2014

Hello Friends,

As expected, it’s very small this morning. Set wave faces at Dee Why are (infrequently) around the waist high mark. But that smooth sea bottom is making almost all of them close out. The city was fog shrouded but along the beaches skies were clear and winds were light. So, a nice morning for a paddle and who knows, you might even jag a wave.

According to the swell forecast models this morning, today and tomorrow are looking uninspiring. There could be a little bump up on Friday and from Saturday onward into the new week, there should be a bit more energy again as we get a run of small but steady south swell in the 7-8 second range. Knee to waist plus I’d guess, but it could be a bit bigger at optimally exposed spots.

Have yourself a top Wednesday everyone!

Tiny closeouts and that's about it at 0730

Weather Situation
A high over the western Tasman Sea extends a weak ridge over coastal New South Wales. The ridge will contract to the northeast later today as a trough and associated cold front approach from the southwest. This system is expected to bring a southerly change to southern and central parts of the coast during Thursday, before stalling north of Sydney on Friday. There are indications that low is likely to develop off the south coast later on Friday, deepening and moving eastwards during the weekend under the influence of a passing upper-level feature.
