Easily missable this morning

Not an attractive scene this morning  

 
Hello Friends,

You’d have to be incredibly keen to go for surf this morning. Wind is onshore from the east and skies are heavily overcast. There is some wave activity, but while it’s jumped up out at sea to 2.2 m at close to 11 seconds apart from the south, Dee Why didn’t look dramatically bigger than yesterday. Water quality has taken a real hit thanks to the rain overnight and as a consequence Beachwatch has posted pollution-likely warnings at most of the Northern beaches for this morning.
Outlook is rather ho-hum. Swell is supposed to fade back over the next couple of days before coming up a little from the NE on Friday. Wind is going to be a factor right into next week with mornings being the best shot for clean(-ish) conditions.
Have a great Tuesday everyone!

Weather Situation

A trough remains slow-moving on central parts of the New South Wales coast this morning, while a weak high is centred over the Tasman Sea. The trough is expected to decay during Wednesday as the high becomes dominant, although a new trough is forecast to bring a southerly change to the southern half of the coast on Thursday. Winds in the north are likely to increase during the second half of the week as a low pressure system approaches from the tropics, although its path is currently quite uncertain.
