A touch over 2 metres of SE swell at about 10-sec apart rolling into Sydney’s beaches this morning. Dee Why point was seeing waist to chest plusses when I checked for the first time at 0800. At the time skies were overcast but not looking like raining immediately. Wind was light and from the west at North Head. Outlook is for the wind to stay light and the swell should stick around about the current size through the day but be distinctly smaller by evening. Tide is coming into the high at 1120.
Outlook is for tomorrow to be small but potentially still surfable at south magnets in the morning. There might be a few scraps on Tuesday and then it’s shaping to be pretty marginal from there through the weekend according to the models.
It’s gonna be busy anywhere with waves today, but it’s also your best shot at something (probably) for the next week…
Go well with your Sunday and stay happy!
A high pressure system near Tasmania extends a ridge over New South Wales, and will slowly drift east during the next day or two. This pattern will continue to direct southerly winds over most waters today, shifting more northerly on Monday as the high reaches the Tasman Sea. The next cold front is forecast to sweep across the state mid-week.
