Hot day ahead for Sydney

Posted by: on January 31st, 2017


Hello Friends,
NW winds foretell a hot one for Sydney. You’re coming off a low tide at 0500 and there’s about 1.3 metres of 6 second east to ese wind bump. So, surf prospects are pretty ordinary for today. In fact, my reading of the models suggests that the minor to micro short period wind bump will prevail pretty much all week. Right now it looks as though there might be a possible uptick for the weekend – but it’s not a universal view among the models I look at.
Still quite small here, but we’re all hoping for an increase in the energy levels in the next few days. As always, if I get any pics to share, I will!
Have a great day
