Low key Wednesday

Posted by: on June 14th, 2017

Hello Friends,

As the pictures show, there wasn’t much excitement on the surf front this morning at Dee Why. There didn’t seem to be anybody at the point and the south end but there was at least one person bobbing around up the beach toward No Mans. Size looks to be in the knee to maybe waist high range.
Wind was light from the south at report writing time and the Bureau says it should be variable to 10 kts across the day. The latest MHL data from 0600 was showing 1.5 metres of 9 second SSE swell dominating the mix, but there’s some NE showing too, and the Bureau’s call is for the NE component to bump up this afternoon into the 1.5 metre range. The tide was low at 0530 and is heading to a 1.3 metre high at 1130.
A quick scan of the forecast models suggests that the generally marginal to small conditions will continue until around Saturday when it looks as though we’ll shift into an extended period of vigorous south wind into the front half of next week. Swell is predicted to peak at the upper end of the 2-3 metre range, but the wind will minimise surf options. Here’s hoping we get a touch of SW at least!
Go well with your Wednesday one and all!
