First clear morning in at least a week sees waist to chest high conditions from Dee Why to No Mans and Longy no doubt too. Wind was very light at 0800 when I checked. A couple of hours ago the MHL buoy was picking up 1.4 metres of 10-sec SE swell. The 1.7m high tide arrived at 0750.
The light winds should prevail through the morning but by midday it should settle into the E-NE.
Obviously it’ll be very busy in the water today, so patience and good humor will be my plan.
Outlook for the rest of the week is about what it was yesterday, ie dropping to near flat by Tuesday then turning strongly southerly and picking up again on Friday. Thereafter it currently looks like being basically S-SE into next week.
Have yourself a top old Sunday one and all!
