Another beautiful morning in Sydney with clean little waves for the keen. Sets at the point looked to be around the waist to maybe occasionally chest high mark and it seemed to be about the same at Kiddies and up the beach on the biggest ones. Wind was light offshore and swell at 0300 was 1.8 m at 9-second from the SSE.
Wind should stay light in the morning before a NE sea breeze kicks in around midday.
Tide was low at 0440 and will be high at 1100.
The models are still saying it should be smaller than it is right now and there still seems to be a small hope of some south activity on Sunday – although the predictions are less enthusiastic than yesterday. It’ll be interesting to see the Goat’s take on this…
Have yourself a top old Thursday everyone and go well with your plans!
Winds will tend north to northeasterly today and Friday as a high pressure system moves over the Tasman Sea extending a ridge along the north coast. A cold front is expected to enter the south coast early Saturday, with an associated southerly change expected to reach the north coast by Saturday evening. A high pressure ridge on Sunday will bring a return to northeasterly winds.
