A little more energy and grey skies

Posted by: on January 31st, 2018

Hello Friends,

As expected, we’ve switched over to southerly conditions this morning. So, grey skies, the odd spot of rain, and a building southerly that should see wind speeds in the 25-30 kt range later today. Swell has come up from yesterday as it builds toward the 2-3 metre mark by lunch time. Surface conditions at 0900 were not too bad, but wind was coming from the SW at 8-10kts. Once it goes south and gets to full throttle quality at Dee Why will go downhill.

Outlook is for these southerly settings to stay about the same for at least another few days. Some models show the wind getting a SW tilt around Sunday but the swell energy levels are looking like fading away too. This surfing business really requires a lot of patience!

Have a great day everybody and stay happy, you hear?

Weather Situation

A front with an associated southerly change over the Hunter waters is moving north and will reach the far north coast by late morning/early afternoon. Behind the front a slow-moving high pressure system south of the Bight will extend a ridge along the coast maintaining south to southeasterly winds over the next few days.
