Ankle to knee at best

Posted by: on December 19th, 2017

Hello Friends,

Yet another grey start to the day along the beaches. As of 0700 the wind was coming lightly from the SW, but the Bureau has a strong wind warning for later when it expects 15-25 kts of N to NE. The MHL data from 0400 is consistent with what the pictures taken 3 hours later show, ie ankle to maybe knee high thanks to 1.2 m of 7 second south wind bump. Tide was close to its midpoint when I took the snaps. It’ll be a 1.75 m high at 0940. It should be sunny later as we head for the high of 31.

Tomorrow’s set to be very hot (38 on the coast) and unfortunately the swell models are not overly hopeful for any significant improvement over today’s barely there waves. Most of the predictions are saying we can expect 7-8 sec stuff at 1.2-1.5 m from the NE.

The long range models don’t show any significant change to the mainly small, short period conditions across the next 10 days. Typical summer conditions in other words.

Have a great Tuesday everyone!

A few hopefuls in the water at 0650

Doesn’t look like a wave at No Mans as of 0650
