Outlook is for wind to pick up during the morning but to stay out of the westerly quarters. Swell should stick around all day, but the Bureau it expects it to begin fading by late afternoon.
Tomorrow should see a similar pattern with the sunny weather and reasonable winds, but swell’s expected to have dropped overnight and it’ll continue running out of puff during Monday. Some of the models show it going flat but others say we could still have some waist plusses at south magnets – for the early at least.
