Grey, bumpy and full at Dee Why this morning

Maybe a junky option at No Mans around 0740

Hello Friends,

The Bureau has a caution posted for large and powerful surf conditions, but as you can see from the pics, Dee Why’s not looking particularly intimidating. There were a few folks in the water at the point, but it looked inconsistent, sloppy and maybe chest high on sets – if that. A 2 m high tide at 0945 isn’t helping matters. At least the wind is a relatively light 7-9 kts SWly at report writing time. The southerly is supposed to top out at 15-25 kts  today before fading after dark. The MHL buoy was showing 3 metres of 9-sec south swell at 0500. Water is around the 23°C mark, so at least it should be nice in.

The grey and lightly showery weather is forecast to last through Sunday, but while the swell level is set to slump back, there should be little bumps around for those who don’t mind weather and junkiness.

So, not the most interesting outlook, but not hopeless either.

Have a great day and keep on smilin’!

 

Weather Situation

Ex-Tropical Cyclone Fehi over the central Tasman Sea is moving quickly towards New Zealand and a strong high is situated over the Southern Ocean with a ridge extending along the New South Wales coast. A southerly airstream is being directed along the coast between the two systems, with wind strengths easing as the low moves further away. The high centre is expected to remain very slow-moving.
