Only one person in the water at the point as of 0730 and yet, as the pictures show, there were definitely chest plus waves to be had. Couldn’t see much up the beach, but there should be the odd option around the Pole. Water’s pretty likely to be woofy though. Wind was light and NNW but there is a gale warning for 25-30 kts of N-NW going W-NW later in the day.
Swell was 2.4 metres combo of north and SSE swells. Period was around the 8-9 second mark as of 0600. Not the best setting on the period, so I’d expect to find close together, relatively weak and wind-swelly conditions at places that like east.
Tide is high at 0810 and back to low at 1345.
Outlook for the remainder of the week hasn’t changed too much since yesterday. Today’s the peak, in fact this morning is, and from here on in it’s expected to get smaller and smaller. By Thursday it could be flat. Friday looks the same, but the prospect of solid south pulse on Saturday is still showing on the predictions. Sunday could be the peak day with potential for double overhead conditions – if the super computers have it right. The big stuff could last through Tuesday.
Have yourself a great Monday one and all!
A complex low pressure system is moving over the southwestern Tasman Sea and it will continue to move rapidly south-southeast during Monday and winds along the New South Wales coast will turn westerly during Monday morning and afternoon.
