Cold and offshore

Posted by: on July 21st, 2017

Hello Friends,
Icy wind but heaps of chest to head and a bit waves at the point thanks to around 3.2 metres of 11-sec south swell. Tide was a 1.4m high at 0610 and will be back to a 0.4m low at noon.
Wind was coming from the west at 13-20 kts as I tapped out these words. The Bureau says that both it and the swell should weaken a tiny bit around midday. There’s a 30% chance of a shower along the coast but it should mostly be partly cloudy today.
If you don’t mind a chilly change in the carpark, it shouldn’t be too bad once you’re in because the water is around 19C – which is about 10 degrees warmer than the air at 0745.
The Goat rolled out his forecast last night, so if you’re wondering about the outlook, have a look!

The high is forecast to move slowly eastwards across New South Wales today and during the weekend, with coastal winds easing in response.
