Saturday and beyond

Posted by: on February 25th, 2017

Something for you to read on a wet day

Waves are currently around 2.3 m offshore from dead South at 9 seconds.  Tide is high at 8.20am. It’s raining heavy at times, windy at 30-40 kph overcast and dull to dark to poor visibility…

And there are some keen ones in the water! Me… I’ll have a shower instead.

The surf doesn’t look too promising for Saturday at the moment….likely to start coming up at places open to due South, but which will also be open to the S wind … And only shortish period swell, so it’s not likely much will get into protected corners.
If you’re keen you’ll have to look hard to find that place with a sweet spot between the wind being too much, and the waves not breaking.
For the following days, not much joy at this stage… Although there’ll be waves pretty much all week it looks like most days with have onshore/onshoreish wind, so wave quality isn’t likely to be high.
Never mind.  Might be ok for a get fit swim in protected corners, or in beach rock pools
Water temp was 22 from the Noreasters yesterday…Already back up to 24 after the southerly came through.
The Bureau is forecasting several days with the chance of a Thunderstorm… Being on the open ocean, or an open beach if there’s lightning around is not the places to be then.
The Goat’s Surf Forecast 
Surf forecast issued Thursday 23 February 2017: Seven day outlook for Sydney:

Well we’ve had some nice weather …and ordinary waves. ..

Now, based on the Bureau’s current weather outlook, and after TG has digested the info he swallowed from his long range over the horizon binoculars and crystal ball (there’s a picture for you),  it looks like we might have coming our way ….some ordinary weather…and some ordinary short period low quality waves!  Yum.
I can either tell you what you want to hear, or I can tell you the truth…
No use sugar coating it for you..
Friday: around the middle of the 1-2 metre range East North East, might be alright in the morning before the wind turns S / SE
Saturday: starting to come up at places that get dead South swell,  but with little quality, no pulse to it and windy and choppy
Sunday: in the 1-2 metre range East North East with onshore wind
Monday: pretty much ditto
Tuesday: down a bit in the 1-2 metre range East North East onshoreish
Wednesday: and ditto
Thursday: 1-2 metre range East with onshore
Have fun.  Keep smiling!
