Another tiny but pretty morning at Dee Why

Posted by: on November 16th, 2017

Hello Friends,

The Bureau says it will cloud over as the day goes along and that there’s a chance of a shower later on, but as Thursday fired up, it was sunny with a light NNE breeze. As the pictures show the wave activity was minimal at Dee Why and up to No Mans. I’m calling it ankle to knee. It’s therefore no surprise to see the 0500 data from the MHL Sydney buoy showing 1 metre of  6-second wind bump coming from the NE.

Wind should be out of the NE all day and by this afternoon it’ll be 15-20 kts. That should push up the little bumps a bit but of course it’ll be strongly onshore and cloudy too. Tide was high at 0745 and will be back to low at 1400.

The Goat should be along later today with his thoughts on the week ahead and as always I’ll be keen to see how his wisdom compares to the consensus of the models. From the look of the Bureau’s interpretation of the data, we’re not likely to see any improvement to size until early next week – and then it looks like being longish period east with heaps of east wind.

Have a top old Thursday one and all!
