Dee Why looked dull this morning

Posted by: on November 27th, 2017

Hello Friends,

High overcast and 7-9 kts of NNE breeze made for a rather dull picture this morning when you correspondent climbed aloft to the crows nest for a scan of the surf situation. Swell settings are pretty much where they were yesterday (ie, a metre of 9-sec east bump at sea). So the short version is: if you found a little wave on the low tide yesterday, get back there  soon because said low is at 0905 this morning. I reckon a waist high wave would be doing pretty well this morning, so take your tiny surf option if you’re going hunting.

According to the Bureau despite all the high cloud, there’s only a slight chance of a shower today. It should get to 26 along the coast and wind should pick up to 10-15 kts as it swings to the NE by late morning.

Outlook for the remainder of the week is for the current conditions to gradually decay toward midweek before turning around and gradually coming back up into the waist to chest range at east magnets by Friday-Saturday. On current reckoning next week is shaping to broadly similar to this, but possibly with a south pulse arriving on Monday – along with heaps of south wind.

Onward friends, onward through the season of tininess!
