Mostly overcast skies this morning and only the barest hint of a wave at Dee Why beach (it was too small for the point). The MHL buoy was showing about a metre of 7 sec NE wind bump as of 0500. Tide was low at 0755 and will be coming into a high of 1.6 m at 1425. Wind was light before 0800 but the Bureau tells us to expect a shift to the S-SE around lunchtime. Outlook is for the swell energy to bumble along through the day at approximately the current levels and looking at the week ahead on the various models, it would seem we’re in for very small and weak conditions into early next week. I wonder what the Goat’ll think…
