Very small lines on Tuesday morning

Posted by: on October 24th, 2017

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.
