What a stunning morning. Clear skies, mild temp and a steady offshore perfectly grooming the sea surface. Alas, as the pictures reveal, there is no surf at Dee Why. MHL must be having technical difficulties because the only buoy reporting in this morning was Batemans Bay. For what it’s worth, it was showing less than a metre of 9 second SSE. So the flatness is obviously pretty widespread.
Not that it has any bearing on our prospects, but the tide was 1.7 m at 0740 and is currently dropping to the 0.37 m low at 1350.
Should be mostly sunny today, with a high of 25°.
The models are showing a slight upward bump around lunchtime today, but it’s not looking likely to be much above the knee high mark.
Monday is shaping to be near flat again, but there might be a little uptick in the afternoon from the SSE. On Tuesday we’re set to have showery, SE’ly conditions. The swell should build with the wind, but I’m not hopeful about the quality for most places. Maybe on Thursday morning we’ll get light winds for the morning session along with some remnant straight south swell…
Have a great Sunday everybody!
A low pressure system southeast of Tasmania is moving slowly east directing westerly winds across the western Tasman Sea .Winds along the New South coast will tend southwest to southeasterly during Tuesday as a high pressure system moves near Tasmania extending a ridge to the north.
