Near flatness

SUP rider on the hunt for a bump

Might be an ankle to knee high something

Hello Friends,

There seemed to be very slightly more activity than yesterday, but it’s still just barely catchable looking at Dee Why. The MHL buoy was showing 1.6 m of 8-sec of SSE (149°) wind bump – which the Bureau says will fade later in the day.

Wind was light from the SW at 0800 and the King tide was coming into a 2.05 m high at 1045. The grey skies may sprinkle on us this morning too. The day’s high is set to be 25 and UV will be 13 (extreme) from 0840 to 1710. Water temp is around 22.

The Goat should be along later today with his usual weekend and week ahead outlook. If the models are anything to go by, my guess is that he’ll be calling it small to flat for another week. I’ll be sending postcards from Cali from next week, and right now it would seem I’ll find the same abject flatness but with 15° water. There does seem to be some hope for a one-day wonder pulse Weds-ish though…

Have a great day everyone and go well with your plans!

 

Weather Situation

A trough lies to the northeast of the state, while high pressure system over the Bight extends a ridge through Victoria to the New South Wales Coast, promoting southerly winds along the coast. This high is moving east and is expected to be centred over the Tasman Sea on Friday, with winds turning northeasterly during Friday and Saturday as a result. A cold front will then skim across the south of the state on Sunday, bringing a southerly change to southern and central waters.
