The Goat’s Surf Forecast

Posted by: on November 16th, 2017

Surf forecast issued Thursday 16 November 2017: Seven day outlook for Sydney:

We’ve had some fab sunny days, but with onshores and small waves. There are some days of cloudy sky, much needed showers ahead and Noreasters are expected by the Bureau till Sunday, when the wind will turn more Easterly again, with onshores right through till Thursday.

The good news for those who don’t mind onshore wind spraying the sea into your eyes, ears and mouth or just keeping your body temperature down below comfortable levels when you’re wet, is that the surf should pick up a little with the wind. That’s “up a little” speaking relatively, if you start from “tiny” today.  For everyone else not at work or school who find onshores just plain annoying, it looks looks like jobs time again, or walkies, or bikies etc.

Surf outlook:

Friday: slight uptick from today as the Noreaster keeps pushing along, say 1- 1+ metres East North East

Saturday: up more in the 1-2 metre range East North East, somewhat bigger and windier at southern ends of beaches

Sunday: in the 1-2 metre range East, with East winds

Monday: down a little in the 1-2 metre range East

Tuesday: ostensibly (big word !) about the same, but with longer period sets that may be bigger

Wednesday: down again, around 1-1+ metres

Thursday: coming up a little in the 1-2 metre range East/South

Enjoy whatever you’re doing!
