Waves for the early and more to come

Posted by: on October 3rd, 2014

Hello Friends,

The Bureau’s hoisted a warning for large and powerful surf conditions later today. As of 0630 the swell was showing from the SSE at a couple of metres with an average period around the 10 second mark. Wind was light offshore for the dawn patrol and set wave faces at Dee Why beach were getting toward the head high mark. Conditions were clean a the point as well, but the sets looked to be about a third smaller than the beach. Of course your mileage may vary.

Wind is expected to come around to the SE later this morning before swinging to the NE. The swell is predicted to build this afternoon and to peak overnight and to still be hammering along strongly for the first sesh tomorrow. In fact, there should be waves pretty much through Sunday. Tide’s low at 0850 this morning.

Could be a good long weekend for surfin’ everybody, so I’m looking forward to getting pics of a few of you fine folk.

Go well with your Friday and have a great day!

Weather Situation

A high pressure system near Mount Gambier extends a ridge over most of NSW, and will gradually move east during the next few days before a southerly change affects southern and central parts of the coast on Sunday. A strong cold front passing over the southern Tasman Sea and an associated deep low even further south will generate a long period southerly swell for the NSW today and Saturday.

Forecast for Friday until midnight

Winds
Southeasterly about 10 knots increasing to 10 to 15 knots in the late morning then tending northeasterly in the evening.

Below 1 metre.
