Looks like our run of waves pretty much finished up overnight. There are still some tiny knee high bumps around, but anything bigger than that is unusual. The wind was light early but is expected to kick up from the north before long. Tide was high (1.3m) around 0615 and is dropping to low at just before noon. So, not the greatest combo for the marginal to near flat conditions.
Outlook is for a flat to near flat front half of the coming week. We might start to see some improvement on Thursday as some models are showing 12-13 second 1.5-2m south swell and light westerlies arriving that morning…
Have yourself a great Father’s Day everyone!
A high pressure system is located over the northern Tasman Sea. Winds will turn northerly and strengthen in many coastal areas today as a cold front approaches from the west. This front looks set to bring a gusty change to the southern coast late today, continuing through to the north on Monday.
