Curly and Dee Why flat too

Posted by: on July 31st, 2017

Hello Friends
You can write off surfing this morning. It’s flat everywhere – and choppy.
The SW’ly should kick in this afternoon and by tomorrow be going strongly. At the same time this morning’s forecast from the Bureau confirms what the models have been saying for awhile now, namely that we should see a south pulse fill in tonight and be obvious tomorrow. It looks like being just short period stuff, so only the magnets are likely to see anything of interest — and they have to be friendly to the strong SW wind as well. The models show the swell staying around the 2 metre mark through Friday, but the average period doesn’t look likely to improve significantly. A mixed bag really and I’m not expecting all time conditions anywhere – just hoping it’ll be somewhat surfable somewhere.
Have a great Monday everyone!

Weather Situation
As a cold front moves off the New South Wales coast today, a low pressure system will develop over the southwestern Tasman Sea. This low is expected to deepen later today before moving rapidly east away from the coast tonight and through Tuesday. A vigorous south to southwesterly change will extend along the coast as the low moves offshore. Winds will gradually ease later on Tuesday and through Wednesday as a weak high pressure system briefly develops across the state. An inland trough and low pressure system are forecast to move across the state on Thursday, reaching coastal waters by Thursday evening.
