Cloudy skies, glassy seas and a tiny south swell combining to deliver the occasional waist high take-off for the patient folks bobbing around at the point at 0730. In between the one or two wave sets it pretty much looks like a lake.
Tide was low at 0545 and is heading back to a 1.45m high at 1155.
Prospects for an improvement still look about the same as yesterday, ie a solid south pulse hitting overnight Thursday and filling in during the morning on Friday along with 25-35 kts of SW wind. With luck the pulse – which could be into the head plus range – should last through to Monday if the models are right.
Have a great day everyone!
A trough and associated cold front will bring a west to southwesterly change to southern and central parts of the New South Wales coast today, continuing to the north on Thursday. A second front will move along the coast late Thursday and Friday, accompanied by vigorous southerly winds. A low pressure system is then forecast to develop within the front as it moves across the Tasman Sea, while a new high pressure system develops over New South Wales in its wake.
