In line with the low expectations, this morning sees another day of waiting around for something to happen. I suppose if you had a kayak or something of similar buoyancy, it might be possible to pick up a little energy every now and then. But I think that’d be quite an ask where Dee Why’s concerned.
The MHL buoy was detecting a metre of SSE swell at close to 11 seconds apart as of 0600. Conditions are quite similar down at Eden, so nothing in the data to offer encouragement.
Outlook for the rest of the work week remains pretty hopeless according to the models. But the weekend could see a vigorous south swell arrive on Saturday and last into Sunday. The wind outlook is mixed, so while it may be pretty big (4 metre range by some estimates), but it might be a little too southerly and too strong for some places.
Anyway, have a good Monday!
A high pressure system will move slowly eastwards across New South Wales and weaken during Monday. A vigorous westerly airstream is expected to develop over much of NSW from Tuesday associated with a broad low pressure trough to the south of Australia. A strong cold front will cross the state during Thursday and Friday.
