Still a few sets left in the mix this morning

Posted by: on April 19th, 2016

Hello Friends,

Swell’s definitely down from yesterday’s peak intensity, but it’s still producing the occasional shoulder plus set at the point and along the beach. Swell’s coming mainly from the SSE at about 2.5 metres with an average period just a touch under the 10 second mark. Like yesterday, the point was well populated at 0700 when I grabbed the pics. Tide was high at 0630 and is now dropping to the low at 1245.
Swell’s predicted to decrease across the morning and wind should stay lightly from the south.
Outlook on the models this morning is for the energy levels to stick around at slightly below this morning’s offerings through to the weekend. Then it seems as though we might get another blast of southerly wind along with an uptick in swell.
Your correspondent is going to relocate to the lovely central coast for the next couple of days. The computer’s going with me, so if I can get a connection, I’ll try to file a picture or two…
Have a great Tuesday one and all!

Weather Situation
A high pressure system over the Tasman Sea is extending a ridge across southern New South Wales, while a trough lies off the central and northern coasts. This pattern is leading to considerable variability in winds over most waters. The trough is expected to gradually weaken during Tuesday and Wednesday as the ridge shifts northwards, generating north to northeasterly winds from the middle of the week. The next southerly change is expected in the south late Thursday, extending through remaining areas on Friday.
