Marginal at best for Monday morning

Posted by: on November 20th, 2017

Hello Friends,

High overcast and a light SE breeze making for a less than attractive picture. There’s about a metre of 8-sec SE wind bump out at sea and it’d be struggling to be that big on wave faces at Dee Why beach. As the picture shows there were a couple of bods chasing slop at the point just before 0700, but I didn’t see them actually catch anything. As with the last few days, it’s a case of being extremely keen or giving it a miss. Plus there is the little matter of the frigid water temps.

While the height of the swell looks like staying in the metre or even sub-metre range for the rest of the week, there is a faint hope that we could see the occasional waist plus set later today through tomorrow morning if the average period jumps into the 12-13 sec range per the models. The wind promises to be 10-15 kts from the east through Wednesday, so quality prospects are not great.

Not the greatest news on the surf front, but have yourself a great Monday anyway and keep on smilin’!

Weather Situation

A high pressure system over the southern Tasman Sea extends a ridge towards the northern New South Wales coast, and is directing southeast to northeasterly winds over coastal waters. Very little change to this pattern is expected during the next few days, with winds gradually shifting more northerly towards the end of the week as the high moves away.
