Back to grey for Monday

Posted by: on December 4th, 2017

Hello Friends,
A dull and cool start to the first working week of December. At 0830 wind was coming from the south at 10-15 kts and there were occasional light showers drifting across the coast. Swell has come up markedly overnight and according to the most recent offshore data from the MHL buoy, it was 2.4 m from the south at 9 seconds. And down south at Eden it was 3.6 m from the south at 13 seconds – which makes me think it could build as the day goes along. Unfortunately the wind is going to be onshore all day, so even when we’re past the 0920 2 metre high tide, surface conditions are going to be iffy at best.
Tomorrow looks somewhat more hopeful. It’s still expected to be rainy (so water quality issues possible) but swell intensity should increase as a 2 metre south and 1.5 to 2.5 metre east combo fills in as the wind goes SW. And Wednesday could be more promising yet as the onshores may relent while the combo swell chugs along at 2-3 m and 9-10s. Right now the models are showing fun prospects through to Saturday.
Have a great Monday everyone and fingers crossed for the coming week!

Very full and rainy too

Definitely liney up the beach, but fat and full at 0825

Weather Situation

A broad area of low pressure lies off the New South Wales coast, within which a number of localised low pressure circulations are forecast to develop during the next couple of days. This is expected to result in a complex and highly variable wind pattern over most waters, as determined by the positioning of the low centres. During Tuesday, the most significant of these lows is likely to deepen off the southern coast before moving out of New South Wales waters on Wednesday. A fairly weak pressure pattern is forecast to feature in the latter part of the week.
