Although it was a bit hazy and smoky looking early, as I write this it looks as though we should have a sunny day with a few little waves. According to the MHL data as of 0400 there was 1.4 metres of 9 second SE wind swell washing in. That’s pretty similar to yesterday’s settings which gave us knee to chest high bumps before the tide swamped it.
Wind was light from the WNW early and after a variable morning, it should go N-NE and be 15-20kts this afternoon. Tide will be high at 1140, so surfable conditions should persist a little longer than yesterday.
The Goat dropped his forecast last night, so just roll down the page to see what he thinks of our prospects for the next week.
And have yourself a great Friday!
Winds will tend north to northeasterly as a high pressure system over the region slowly drifts east. 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 will develop over New South Wales in the wake of the front, bringing a return to northeasterly winds later on Sunday.
