Light westerly at 0730 but it’s expected to go more NW later. Dee Why was showing shoulder to head high wave faces on the sets both at the point and along the beach when I grabbed the pics at 0730. Considering the quality there really weren’t that many in the water at the point.
Swell’s notched down a little and as of 0600 the MHL buoy was showing 2 metres from the ESE at 11-12 sec. Tide was high at 0715 and is now dropping to low at 1305. Weather should be mostly sunny all day says the Bureau.
Sounds like an argument for going surfin’!
A high pressure system over southeast Australia is the dominant synoptic feature in the region, promoting light to moderate winds along most of the coast. A fairly weak cold front looks set to arrive on the weekend as the the high decays, bringing a fresh west to southwesterly change. Following this, a new ridge is expected to extend across from the west at the start of next week, with winds again becoming light to moderate over New South Wales waters.
