Stopped by Long Reef this morning and as the pictures show, it’s not really a surf day out there. Along with the drizzly heavy overcast, the surf situation is dire. And, from the look of the forecast (see below) we’re not likely to see any improvement today. There’s just no energy in the system right now.
Tomorrow promises to be showery in the morning and then windy from the NE. Unfortunately the models are showing only tiny, short period wind bump for the next week. The doldrums of spring are upon us my friends.
Have yourself a great Wednesday everyone!
A high pressure system over the Tasman Sea is directing northeasterly winds along the New South Wales coast, with an increasing trend expected today as a cold front approaches from the west. This front is forecast to bring a southerly change to southern and central parts of the coast on Thursday, before weakening on the northern coast during Friday. Another high looks set to move across southeast Australia behind the front, and should remain the dominant feature in the region through the weekend.
Forecast for Wednesday until midnight
