Still under a metre up and down the NSW coast this morning. There seemed to be a hint of extra energy showing at Dee Why, but only the barest little bit. Swell at sea of Sydney is out of the SE again this morning and average period is sitting on the 12 sec mark. So I reckon if you found a wave yesterday, there’ll probably be something similar there again today. Exposed spots could be around the knee to waist high mark but otherwise, it’ll be more lakelike than anything else.
Tide hits high at 0855 is back to low at 1510.
The Bureau tells us not to expect much change in the swell today, but tomorrow it predicts a swing more to the east with a slight increase toward midday.
Not sure if the Goat will do a forecast today, but I’ll be interested to see how he reads the guts. The modellers are generally agreeing that we should see some solid energy from late Saturday through to Monday night at south swell spots. Oh, and they’re suggesting offshore winds in the mornings too. This pattern has been showing for some time now, so I’m pretty hopeful…
Keep on smilin’!
A broad and slow moving high pressure system is currently over New South Wales, and will persist until the end of the week. A front will cross the area on Saturday and extend a southerly wind change along the New South Wales coastline.
