Morning update for ya…
Had to be up in Avalon this morning, so it gave me a good chance to see what was happening along the beaches. And the story is the same as at Dee Why – nothin’ much.
No one was in the water to chase waves at Avalon. Great morning to be getting a core workout on the SUP though. It was the same story at Newport, Mona Vale, Warriewood and Northy. Although there were a few folks catching knee high shories at the most famous of those spots.
Here’s a snap to add to the collection for today…
I wrote at 0715:
Wow. Did I get yesterday’s pulse wrong or what? Sheesh. Sorry about that but Huey slipped some lead into the gloves while I wasn’t looking. At dusk last night the swell was showing as about 1.5-2.5m metres from 66 degrees at 10 seconds apart and places like south Narrabeen and Mona Vale were head high plus on sets. Plus it was light offshore and barrelling. (I shot a few pics, so will post those soon) South Narra shots here and Mona Vale shots here.
Unfortunately this morning sees… nothin at Dee Why.
The MHL buoy is showing 1-1.5 metres of ENE swell at 8.5 seconds apart. So, there might be a few knee to waist high bomb sets at spots that saw the serious energy yesterday afternoon. But tide is high right now, so even the best spots are going to be fat for the morning sesh (tide’s high at 0940). Should be a nice day though!
The Goat sent in his forecast early this week, and as usual it looks to be spot on. Just jump down the page to read it.
Keep on smilin’ everybody!
A cold front will reach the south coast Thursday afternoon then extend north Thursday night and Friday morning and gradually weaken. A high pressure system is expected to move across NSW during Friday then into the Tasman Sea on Saturday with winds tending northeasterly. Another relatively weak front is forecast to cross southern and central parts of the coast Sunday.
