Mostly grey skies with the odd sprinkle at 0700 for Dee Why. Swell perked overnight and there were sets into the chest plus range. The MHL buoy was showing 2.5 metres of 10 sec SSE swell and wind was light from the westerly quarters. We had a 1.6 metre high tide at 0615 and it’s now heading to the low just before 1300. Showers should decrease this morning and by the afternoon we could have sunny breaks. Wind should come around to the south soon.
Gotta run, so have yourself a great Friday one and all!
A low pressure system in the central Tasman Sea extends a trough to Queensland coast, while a high pressure system lies to the south of Tasmania. Southerly winds to the south of the trough will gradually turn southeast to northeasterly over the coming days as the low and high move further east and the high extends a ridge to the New South Wales coast.
