Light WNW winds at daybreak and signs of lines at the point and along the beach. There’s about 1.7 metres of 9-second SE swell to start the day. The Bureau is predicting that the energy levels will weaken as the day goes along. A 1.45m high tide at 0955 isn’t likely to help the cause this morning, but there should be at least a little something for the keen. Plus it’s going to be a mostly sunny day with a high of 24.
Have a great Thursday everyone.
