Pretty sky this morning on way into RNSH to get my surfer’s ear attended to. Meanwhile according to the MIL buoy conditions should be fun at the beach with 3 metres of 12 sec se swell pushing in and light westerly winds. From look of forecast this could be as good as it gets all week…
Weather Situation A high pressure system is situated off the New South Wales coast while a trough approaches the state from the west, resulting in northwesterly winds over most coastal areas today. The trough will reach southern parts of the coast this evening and remaining waters during Tuesday, bringing a fairly weak and short-lived south to southwesterly change. A cold front skimming across the southern half of the state late Wednesday and Thursday looks set to bring a more robust southerly change.
