Lake like Saturday morning

Posted by: on April 14th, 2018

Hello Friends,

At daybreak, as the tide was approaching the 1.6 m high at 0700 and the wind was coming steadily from the NW at 8-10 kts, the ocean was smooth inshore. Smooth and just about perfectly flat between the tiny sets. Out at sea there was a sub-metre sized NE bump. Skies were overcast and the temperature was an alarming for mid-April 24°. We’re set to reach 31° as the skies clear later.

Along the beaches conditions were very clean and wave faces on the sets were in the knee to thigh high range. There were a fair number of folk in the water up around North Narrabeen but it was unsurfably flat south of there. Around the corner at the Longy to Dee Why stretch, there were equally tiny conditions and the people in the water were clustered in a zone from roughly No Mans to a little north of the lagoon.

Tomorrow’s likely to be even smaller and right now it looks as though the energy won’t be coming back until midweek according to most, but not all, of the swell models. So maybe take the mal for a micro wave this morning and then keep an eye on it, but know that you’re not going to miss anything spectacular.

Have a top old Saturday and stay in touch, because flat or not, I’ll be checking it out for you every morning.

Weather Situation

Northwesterly winds along the New South Wales coast will turn vigorous westerly later Saturday and early Sunday in a wake of cold front with an associated low to the south moving east across the southern Tasman Sea. Winds will tend southwest to southeasterly during Tuesday as a high pressure system moves over the southern Tasman Sea extending a ridge along the coast.
