The Goat’s Surf Forecast

Posted by: on March 16th, 2017

Surf forecast issued Thursday 16 March 2017:  Seven day outlook for Sydney:

I hate to say it, but the current outlook is for similar or a variation on more of the same… Showers (or two), onshoreish wind (or fresh southerlies for variety), choppyish short period waves and generally rubbish… with an occasional patch of blue sky, even sunshine, to make you think it’s fining up and settling down at last.  Might be semi OK Monday, Tuesday.

There’s a big High out over the Tasman that’s sending us all the above. A Low that might form off the Goldie is uncertain at this stage according to the BoM.

On the plus side: warm air temps, warm sea temps.

So the Surf:

Friday: let’s just say about 2 metres or so windblown from South East after an expected southerly starts puffing away

Saturday: around 2 + metres East South East windblown

Sunday: around 2 + metres East North East and onshore to Nor East

Monday: around 2 + metres North East, with a fresh Noreaster

Tuesday: in the 1-2 metre range North East, might be OK before a southerly change chops it up

Wednesday: ditto, with southerly wind

Thursday: starting to come up in the 1-2 metre range at dead South places.

If none of the above appeals to you…

Just relax, keep calm and say it again: “Oh well We need the rain”… And keep saying it to make yourself feel better.

Remember, it will get better.

There will be sunshine and perfect waves… Sometime 🙂
