According to the MHL buoy data from 0500, swell energy levels are just about the same as they’ve been since Monday, which means we’re still looking at about a metre of 9-10 second SE wind swell. So, if you found something yesterday, go back there to start your search today.
Wind was light southerly early but is expected to swing east and then NE soon. So, increasingly choppy and onshore in addition to being micro. Cloudy and 80% chance of showers too. Nice.
There’s still some prospect of the energy levels going up late Thursday and Friday as south change pushes through. The issue of course will be the wind which looks set to be more or less southerly to onshore right up to Monday. So, on the one hand we ought to get a little more wind swell from the south, but on the other, most places with any exposure to said swell will be getting the worst of the wind.
The longer range models are finally showing a little hope for us. Maybe by this time next week we’ll be seeing both offshores and fun size SE swell…
Have yourself a great Tuesday.
