Icy start with minimal waves

Posted by: on June 30th, 2017

Hello Friends,

Steady and very brisk 15-20 kts SW wind smoothing the sea at Dee Why as Friday kicked off. No obvious sign of the expected swell, but it’s on the way if the Eden buoy is any guide. It’s over the two metre mark down there, so I’d say the Bureau’s call is not wildly implausible. They’re saying swell could be piling in by lunch time – as in 2.5 to 4 metres.
Tide was low at 0730 and will reach a 1.4 metre high by 1345.
I’ll try to sling up a few more pics in the next another hour or two…
Have a great Friday!

Looking very quiet at Dee Why as of 0715


Weather Situation
A cold front will strengthen southerly winds along the New South Wales coast today. A low will develop within the front as it moves away over the Tasman Sea. Winds are expected to ease during Saturday as a high pressure system moves over southeast Australia strengthening a ridge to the west. Winds will turn northerly on Sunday ahead of the next change expected in the middle of next week.
