Good day for non-surfin’ activities

Posted by: on September 13th, 2017

Hello Friends,
A steady northerly breeze and mild under largely sunny skies at 0630 when your correspondent climbed aloft for the morning’s crows nest pictures. The MHL buoy was showing 0.8 m of bump from the SE as of 0500. Wind should be 15-20 kts from the north for most of the day before going west toward dark. Not that it’s all that relevant, but tide is low at 0710 and then back to a !.6m high at 1345. It’s going to be warm too; 32 says the Bureau.
Outlook is for the puny conditions to last through tomorrow but there might be some little south bumps for Friday morning and then again on Sunday. Maybe. Spring is tightening its grip on the surf prospects.
Have a top old Wednesday everybody!

Is that a line? Hmmm, maybe….

Weather Situation
A high pressure system centred over the northwestern Tasman Sea will direct northerly winds along the coast as a series of cold fronts approach New South Wales from the west. The first of these fronts is expected to skim across the state’s south later today, with little impact on coastal areas. A more significant front will bring a vigorous west to southwesterly change later Wednesday or Thursday.
