Looking at the numbers for Sydney, I’m not really sure how possible it is to even catch a wave this morning. There’s only the faintest little shading on the MHL buoy spectral data chart. It looks to be under the metre mark at not quite 8 seconds from the ENE. High tide’s at 1050, so there’s that too. Wind was light offshore early, but it’s going to go southerly and then south-east later. Throw in the cloudy weather and 60% chance of a shower and it’s really not a recipe for a good surf day at all.
The longer range outlook remains, shall we say, quiet for Sydney. According to some models there might be a little something on Thursday/Friday… maybe…
Have a top old day one and all!
A cold front will bring southerly change to New South Wales south and central coasts this morning extending to the far north coast in the evening. Winds along the coast will turn southeast to northeasterly during Wednesday as a high pressure system moves towards Tasmania extending a ridge to the north.
