Monday starts off glassy but with weak and tiny tide-affected conditions (the 1.8 m high was at 0700) The MHL Sydney buoy is still off the air, however Pt Kembla was showing 1.3 m of 7-sec east wind bump at 0400. That’s right in line with the Bureau’s call and consistent with the conditions at Dee Why this morning (ie knee to waist high) The day should warm up and the cloud should decrease too. Wind will come up from the NE later this morning and get to 10-15 kts by lunch.
Your correspondent is happy to be home, but he’s currently doing battle with a bug picked up a week or so ago and therefore not feeling all that tip-top. Looking forward to feeling normal again!
catch you tomorrow!
A high pressure system near New Zealand extends a ridge towards northeast New South Wales, directing east to northeasterly winds over coastal waters. The northern coast is expected to see a southeasterly shift during today as a deepening low over the Coral Sea begins to head south. A cold front will bring a vigorous southerly change to the southern half of the coast on Tuesday, continuing through remaining waters on Wednesday. Following this, a new high to the west of Tasmania is expected to maintain a ridge along the New South Wales coast through to the weekend, maintaining generally south to southeasterly winds.
