Surf Forecast issued Thursday 18 May 2017: Seven day outlook for Sydney :
Well as we know, we live in an active part of the world for weather …variety is the spice of life… and surf conditions may be prone to change in a somewhat inconsistent manner, so here’s the outlook as she’s currently looking:
Medium to large surf all week, with extra large long period sets to surprise punters from time to time. Keep your eyes ooen and watch the surf for a whike before you rush in. Not looking suitable for beginners on many days, especially with the shallow banks currently at places like Palmie and the Queenscliff to Manly stretch ..even at high tide there are strong rips in places and shallow water is where a lot of accidents happen…and as for rock fishermen…you’ll be safer at home on many days. Check the BoM warnings also from day to day.
Friday: in the 1-2 metre range East South East with bigger oomphier sets at places that get dead South swell
Saturday: 1-2 metre North East windswell
Sunday: 1-2 metre range East South East but with bigger sets from time to time
Monday: coming up around 2 metres or more South East with bigger sets
Tuesday: easing a bit 1-2 metre range South East with bigger sets
Wednesday: down more to say 1, 1+ metres East South East, with bigger sets from time to time
Thursday: in the 1-2 metre range at dead South spots.
Water temp is very mild
