Sunny Sunday but micro at Dee Why

Posted by: on December 3rd, 2017

Hello Friends,

Looks like a great Sunday to check out the stalls at Ocean Care Day in Manly. Tide was peaking at a very full 1.92 m shortly after this morning’s picture was taken and, as you can see, surf options were pretty much non-existent. Not that it mattered much, but wind was a light NW under a bright blue sky and we’re headed to a high of 26 along the coast before it starts to cloud over later in the afternoon. There’s a 90% chance of rain tomorrow and Tuesday, so enjoy the sunny break.

While tomorrow’s surf prospects don’t look great, Tuesday might offer a few surf-in-the-rain options as the wind swings from SW to NW-NE and an easterly swell fills in behind Monday’s south pulse. Wednesday is looking particularly hopeful for east-favourable spots on some of the models and there could be something of interest one way or another through Saturday if those predictions are right.

I’m heading off to Manly and the Surfrider Foundation stall at Ocean Care Day. Might even fire in a post or two while I’m there!

Have a great Sunday everyone.

 

Only a hint of energy as high tide approached the peak.

Weather Situation

A low pressure trough lies over the northern New South Wales coast, and another over southern waters. The southern trough will bring a southerly change through central parts tonight, and may reach northern waters during Monday before being absorbed into a broader trough. By Monday evening this new trough is forecast to be aligned more or less parallel to the coast, with a number of low pressure circulations likely to develop along its length. This is expected to result in a complex and variable wind pattern, as determined by the positioning of the low centres.
