Still some tiny lines around at Dee Why this morning. Wind was coming faintly from ESE at 0800 under hazy, sunny skies. Tide was low at 0720 and will be back to high at 1345. The MHL buoy 0500 report showed 1.6 metres of 10-sec south swell and a couple of hours later when I was looking at it, the sets at both the point and the beach looked to be in the knee to waist plus range.
It doesn’t look like we’ll see any real improvement to conditions across the day and tomorrow, according to the models, should be a good day for work and other non-surfing activities.
From Tuesday onward the predictions are shaping up rather hopefully for at least something surfable in the mornings – particularly in the latter half of the week.
Have yourself a fun Sunday one and all!
A high pressure system over the Tasman Sea is slowly moving east, while a near-stationary trough about the Mid North Coast is weakening. Northerly winds will prevail to the north of the trough while southeasterly winds to its south will gradually shift northerly today as the trough dissipates. Northerly winds will then freshen on Monday ahead of the next front, which is forecast to bring a southerly change to southern waters on Tuesday.
