Our midweek pulse has faded overnight and while the MHL buoy was picking up 1.8 m of 10-sec SSE (158 degrees), the point looked to be waist high and inconsistent. Today’s high tide is a 1/7 m swamper at 0810, so that would definitely have been a factor when I grabbed the pics. Surface conditions were pretty smooth thanks to the light NW breeze. It’s set to pick up soon and then to weaken and go more NE this afternoon. I reckon the best shot for a little fun wave is more likely to be found up toward Longy or around at Curly maybe. But, you can probably get the odd bump anywhere along the beach.
As usual the astonishingly reliable Goat dropped his latest forecast last night so scroll down for his wisdom or jump straight to it here.
Have a great Friday!
A low pressure system over the Tasman Sea is continuing to weaken as it moves southeast, and a weak ridge of high pressure extends across New South Wales. The ridge will decay today as a trough brings a southerly change to southern and central parts of the coast, continuing to the Queensland border during Saturday. A new ridge will extend along the coast behind the trough, with winds gradually shifting northerly on Sunday as a high develops over the Tasman Sea. Another southerly change is likely early in the new week.
