Apart from the mainly cloudy skies, conditions were fun looking at Dee Why point thanks to a couple of metres of mainly east swell with an average period of about 8 seconds. Tide was low at 0520 and will be back to high at 1125. Wind is lightly offshore early but is set to move more around to the NW later so some recalibration may be necessary.
Sets were into the chest plus range at Dee Why point around 0800. It had a high tide look to it funnily enough and surface conditions while much smoother than yesterday, still had a degree of lumpiness.
You might want to jump on it if you can because this could be the peak for at least the next week.
That said, the models are showing a small pulse developing at the weekend, but the winds are set to be going hard from Saturday through to about Monday.
Have yourself a top old day everyone, and stay happy!
A high pressure system over the Tasman Sea extends a ridge across the Southern Ocean to another high north of the Bight. A trough of low pressure over New South Wales is expected to move off the coast today, with a deepening low forming off the far south coast during the day. This low is expected to move into eastern Bass Strait tonight, before moving east again and weakening on Tuesday. As it moves away to the southeast on Wednesday another high is expected to move over southeastern Australia.
