Light NW wind was blowing across a near flat sea on Sunday morning. Skies were clear and temps mild, but you’re going to have to be a real optimist. An incoming tide is heading to its 1.5m peak at 1020, so there’s another issue. Dee Why’s not happening, but if you have something floaty and a fair amount of patience you might be able to find a soft lump somewhere with better alignment to the metre of 10-sec east wind swell.
This morning’s run of the models see prospects looking more or less as they are now until the middle of the week when some predictions are showing a significant pulse from the south arriving overnight Wednesday into Thursday. Wind is forecast to be out of the SW and pretty strong too. If it happens I guess we can call it the first swell of winter.
Have yourself a great Sunday one and all!
A high pressure system over the western Tasman Sea will move east ahead of an approaching cold front. Northerly winds tend fresh to strong west to northwesterly this afternoon before a west to southwesterly change associated with the cold front affects southern parts of the coast this evening, and extends to the remainder of the Waters on Monday. A second south to southwesterly change is expected late Tuesday in the far south, extending north during Wednesday.
Forecast for Sunday until midnight
