Breezy and small

Posted on October 31st, 2017 in Dee Why.

Hello Friends,

A sparkling post-change morning for Tuesday in Sydney. A classic southerly buster yesterday afternoon swept away the heat and flicked the wind swell around to the south. As of 0400 the MHL buoy was showing 2.3 metres of 9-sec dead south out at sea. Three hours later when I grabbed the pics, there was a hint of a line at Dee Why but for now anyway, the swell is staying out to sea. It’s missing the point and seems to be around the knee to waist mark at No Mans. It should be bigger up the north end and over the hill at Curly.
Wind was SW 10-15 kts at North Head as I wrote this and tide was dropping from the 1.36 m high at 0605 to the low at noon. The wind should stay SW but pick up into the 20-25 kt range as the day goes along.
Tomorrow should see the swell ramp up and the wind to stay SW but throttle back. With luck it’ll still be pushing along into Thursday morning.
Have a great day everyone!

Pretty but still small at 0710

Plausible looking high tide line at No Mans

Very small Monday

Posted on October 30th, 2017 in Dee Why.

Hello Friends,

Headed for a hot day before a gusty southerly change late this afternoon. In the meantime we should see northerly wind springing up over the next few hours. As you can see from the pictures, there’s no hint of a wave at the Dee Why end of the beach. A quick scan of the cams along the beaches confirms that everywhere is pretty much in the same situation. And it’s highly likely the micro conditions will last all day.
Once the southerly comes through we can expect the swell to start filling in. The models which had looked so-so yesterday are now predicting around 3 metres of south energy by tomorrow afternoon. Wind outlook isn’t great for the morning, but by late afternoon we could see the southerly swinging more SW, in which case there could be waves at the point. The SW’ly flow looks like continuing through Wednesday and the Bureau’s modelling is joining in with the others to predict 3-4 metres of south energy. Could be interesting!
In the meantime, have a great Monday and fingers crossed for a midweek pulse.

Little rime of whitewater along the rocks at the point, but no waves as of 0730

Up the beach… no waves to be seen


Weather Situation
A front will bring a strong and gusty southerly change to the southern coast this morning, continuing through central areas in the afternoon and evening, before reaching the Queensland border early Tuesday. This system is expected to spawn a deep low pressure circulation over the western Tasman Sea during Tuesday. In combination with a high developing over the Bight, this looks set to maintain fresh to strong southerly winds over most waters through much of the week, with the potential to generate large seas.
Forecast for Monday until midnight

Waves for Sunday morning

Posted on October 29th, 2017 in Dee Why.

Hello Friends,
Contrary to expectations there were little waves to be had at Dee Why this morning. Nothing amazing of course, but if you can have fun on knee to waist high wind bumps, you’d be having fun.
Wind was light from the NW and swell was around the 1.4 m mark and coming from the E by ESE (113°) at 9-sec apart.
Tide was dropping to the low at 0950 and then it’ll run back in to a 1.4m high at 1615.
By the time we’re back to high tide, the NE’r should be pushing in at 15-20 kts and the surf conditions will be summer marginal (ie choppy, close together and gutless wind waves)
Tomorrow morning could see a rinse and repeat of today, but then from Tuesday onward we get into a southerly regime. Yesterday’s hopeful features on the models for midweek have become today’s less interesting prospects. The latest run of the models points to short period, choppy wind from the south with south wind for Weds-Thursday.

Little activity at the point as of 0730

 
Weather Situation
North to northeasterly winds will continue over New South Waters waters today, as a vigorous cold front approaches from the southwest. This front will bring a strong and gusty southerly change to the southern coast Monday morning, continuing through central areas in the afternoon and evening, and reaching the Queensland border early Tuesday. This system is expected to spawn a deep low pressure circulation off the southern coast during Tuesday. In combination with a high developing over the Bight, this looks set to maintain strong southerly winds over most waters through much of the week, with the potential to generate large seas.
Forecast for Sunday until midnight
Winds
North to northeasterly 15 to 20 knots.
Seas
1.5 to 2 metres, decreasing to 1 to 1.5 metres during the morning.
Swell
Easterly below 1 metre.

Waves for Saturday morning

Posted on October 28th, 2017 in At large.

Hello Friends,

Been awhile wince we’ve had glassy waist plus at lots of place on a Saturday morning, but that’s exactly the situation today. Wind was barely there when I grabbed the pics and skies were clear on a day the BoM tells us will reach a summery 26. Along the Collaroy to Narrabeen stretch there were hopefuls from south of Wetherill street, but the best prospects were up toward Northy where it looked as though folks were seeing some chest high sets. Around at the Longy to Dee Why stretch, there were people in good numbers from pretty much Longy shories to Dee Why point. The most focused energy looked to be from around the Pole north toward the lagoon.
At 0400 the MHL buoy was showing a touch under 2 metres of 7-sec SSE wind bump. Tide was dropping to the low at 0840 and we’ll be back to a 1.4 m high at 1505.
The wind should gradually pick up from the north before drifting NE and getting up to 15-20 kts for the late session.

more thoughts on the outlook in a sec.

Weather Situation
A low pressure system over the northern Tasman Sea is losing influence over coastal New South Wales, as a weak ridge of high pressure sprawls across the region. This will result in northeasterly winds increasing over most waters today and tomorrow, before a strong cold front brings a vigorous southerly change during Monday and Tuesday. Within this front, a low pressure circulation is expected to deepen off the southern coast mid-week, maintaining fresh to strong winds in many areas.
Forecast for Saturday until midnight
Winds
Variable below 10 knots becoming northerly 10 to 15 knots in the morning then tending northeasterly 15 to 20 knots in the afternoon.
Seas
Below 1 metre, increasing to 1 to 1.5 metres during the afternoon.

Where are the waves Huey?

Posted on October 27th, 2017 in Dee Why.

Hello Friends,

For much of the last week the swell models have been showing a little south pulse this morning, but as of 0700 it wasn’t really evident at Dee Why. The MHL buoy was showing a slight uptick from the S-SSW into the 1.7 m range. Unfortunately, the average period was a meagre 6 seconds. About the best one can hope for is that there might be a knee high set every now and then, but only at the optimally aligned spots. And just to add to the dour outlook, the wind forecast says we can expect 15-20 kts of S-SE wind later this morning. Tide is low at 0730 and back to a 1.4 m high at 1400.
And the outlook? Well we have a fresh forecast from the Goat!

Hopefuls at No Mans

No activity at the point as of 0645

Weather Situation
A low pressure system off central parts of the New South Wales coast is moving east and extending a trough to the north coast. The low is directing southeast to southwesterly winds to the south of the trough, while northwesterly winds along the far north coast will turn southerly as the trough moves north, reaching Queensland waters this afternoon. During Saturday winds are expected to turn northerly ahead of an approaching front, which is forecast to bring a southerly change to the New South Wales coast during Monday.
Forecast for Friday until midnight
Winds
South to southwesterly 15 to 25 knots tending south to southeasterly 15 to 20 knots in the late morning then decreasing to about 10 knots in the late evening.

Murky and micro morning

Posted on October 26th, 2017 in Dee Why.

Hello Friends,
Heavy overcast and light WSW wind as Thursday kicked off. A very faint wind bump is dribbling in from the south, but as far as Dee Why’s concerned, it’s too weak and tiny to catch. Swell is about a metre out at sea, but it’s dead south and only 5-6 seconds apart. Could be a good day for the Garden if we get the showers as expected, but surfin’ is off the agenda for today.
Wind is set to go southerly tomorrow and that ought to chase the swell up, but I don’t like our chances for anything much in the way of quality. I wonder if the Goat will have a different view…
Have a top old Thursday and take the brolly!

Waiting mode at the point

Weather Situation
A complex low pressure system over the southern inland of New South Wales extends a trough to central parts of the coast. Winds today will tend south to southeasterly south of the trough, and northerly to its north. The low pressure is forecast to move east, reaching the Tasman Sea overnight, and causing winds to shift south to southeasterly throughout during Friday. A ridge will briefly develop in the wake of the low, ahead of a return to northerly winds on the weekend ahead of an approaching front.

Clean and tiny early

Posted on October 25th, 2017 in At large.

Hello Friends,
As of 0400, the swell was around the metre mark and coming from the SE at 10 seconds. Tide was low at 0555 and will hit a 1.5 m high at 1225. Your correspondent was out and about with the camera a few hours later and as the pictures confirm, energy levels are at a very low ebb this morning. The Collaroy-Narrabeen stretch was hopelessly tiny but there were some ankle to knee and a bit dribblers to be had mainly at the Long Reef end on the Dee Why to Longy stretch. Waves were extremely weak, so it was really more of a paddling exercise than anything else.
There’s no real hope of an improvement for the next 24 hours and even the prospective south change on Friday doesn’t look all that exciting. I’d say we’ll be lucky to see waist to chest onshore junk at the most exposed spots. Mid next week currently looks slightly more hopeful on some of the models for SSE spots. It’ll be interesting to see what the Goat thinks tomorrow.
Have yourself a fine old day everyone!

Weather Situation
A high pressure system lies over the northern Tasman Sea, while a trough is entering New South Wales from the west. This pattern is generating northeasterly winds over most waters, though a weak southerly change has moved through the south coast yesterday and overnight. During Thursday the trough, with a low pressure circulation within it, is expected bring a southeast to southwesterly change as it reaches the coast. This system is forecast to move away across the Tasman Sea on Friday, with another ridge briefly developing in its wake, and a return to northerly winds on the weekend.
Forecast for Wednesday until midnight
Winds
North to northwesterly 10 to 15 knots tending south to southwesterly in the middle of the day then tending northwest to northeasterly in the early afternoon.
Seas
1 to 1.5 metres, decreasing to 1 metre during the morning.

Very small lines on Tuesday morning

Posted on October 24th, 2017 in Dee Why.

Hello Friends,

Another beautiful morning for Sydney. At 0630 we had clear skies and light NNW breezes along the beaches. The MHL buoy was detecting 1.2 m of 10 sec of SSE swell which, as the pictures show, was turning into ankle to knee high little lines at the point and maybe knee and a bit up the beach. Tide is running into a 1.6 m high at 1145.
We’re going to a high of 26 and as the day warms up, the NE wind will kick up into the 15-20 kt range this afternoon.
The swell’s unlikely to improve over the next 2-3 days and the prospect of a late week uptick seems to be fading too. Right now it seems the best we can hope for is knee to waist SSE wind bump on Friday and then we could be back to flat – or near enough – for the weekend. For what it’s worth, one of the long range predictions was showing a south pulse around Tuesday… so maybe…
In the meantime, stay stoked, stay happy and have a great day!

Up and riding at the point!

Hint of a line at No Mans around 0630

Weather Situation
A high centre is developing over northern Tasman Sea, which will see coastal winds gradually turning northeasterly, though a weak southerly change may affect the south coast during today. A trough will move through western parts of the state on Wednesday, continuing to the coast during Thursday and bringing southeast to southwesterly winds to most waters. A weak low circulation developing within the trough is expected to move away across the Tasman Sea on Friday, with another ridge briefly developing in its wake.
Forecast for Tuesday until midnight
Winds
North to northwesterly about 10 knots tending north to northeasterly 15 to 20 knots in the middle of the day.
Seas
Below 1 metre, increasing to 1 to 1.5 metres during the afternoon.

Pretty morning

Posted on October 23rd, 2017 in Dee Why.

Hello Friends,
Still a few raindrops sparkling from among the gum leaves after last night’s rain. Skies were clearing and the wind coming lightly from the west as the morning got started. The wind is set to swing south this morning and then back to the easterly quarters by this afternoon. Swell was up slightly from yesterday to 1.3 m from the SE at 8 seconds apart. Tide was low at 0445 and will be back to a 1.6 m high at 1110. Should be a mild day too, with a high of 22.
As you can see from the pictures, there is a tiny bit more energy than yesterday, but it’s still too small to draw any interest at the Dee Why end of the beach. Spots with better exposure should be in the knee to waist high range but there’s no real prospect of an improvement until maybe late in the week. So, another morning for alternate forms of exercise.
Have a top old Monday and stay happy!

Faint line at the point at 0640
