Drifting into the doldrums

Posted by: on November 24th, 2014

Hello Friends,

Not great numbers to start with this Tuesday. About a metre of 8-sec south wind swell showing on the MHL Sydney buoy and 10-15 kts of ESE wind along the coast. Throw in a high tide at a little after 1000 and I’m not overconfident about the wave prospects for you. Ankle to knee onshore slop is my prediction. Good day for work or school.

From the look of the forecasts, tomorrow isn’t too exciting looking, but there may possibly be some activity for the early on Wednesday morning.

Only a few days left on the Cali coast for me now. My reporting will stop after Weds and when it resumes early next week, I shall be back in dear old Sydney once more.

Went for a surf at Mesa Lane (bit of a go-to this trip) and pulled a few framegrabs from the gopro…

Have yourself a great Monday one and all!

Weather Situation

A low pressure trough that moved up the central NSW coast Sunday evening has weakened about the Hunter coast overnight. To the north of the trough northerly winds dominate and as the trough weakens further on Monday winds along the southern and central coasts will tend back to the north. This is ahead of a stronger southerly change associated with a cold front that is expected to develop on the south coast Monday night and move up the coast during Tuesday.

Forecast for Monday until midnight

Winds
Southerly 15 to 20 knots tending north to northeasterly 10 to 15 knots in the early afternoon then tending south to southwesterly in the late evening.
Seas
1.5 metres, decreasing below 1 metre during the morning.
Swell
Northeasterly below 1 metre.
Weather
Cloudy. 90% chance of showers. The chance of a thunderstorm.
