Chilly offshore under mostly clear skies as Friday kicked off. Down at the beach, conditions are distinctly smaller again this morning. There were waist high peelers at Kiddies, but it was just too small for the point to break (at least while I watched). At 0600 the MHL buoy was showing 1.3 metres of 10-second SSE (160°) swell, so the waist high stuff along the beach was in line with those numbers. I wouldn’t be surprised if it was a touch bigger up toward the Longy end.
Tide hits a 1.35 m high at 0900 and ebbs to the low at 1430.
As for the outlook, may I direct you to the The Goat’s weekly meditation upon Sydney’s surf prospects. FWIW, the long range models are pointing to a potentially significant swell event next weekend…
Here’s hoping on your behalf!
Have a top old Friday everyone and keep on smilin’!
A high pressure system over the southern Tasman Sea is slowly moving east as a low pressure trough clears New South Wales and moves over the western Tasman Sea. Winds along New South Wales waters will tend west to northwesterly behind the trough, before turning west to southwesterly during the weekend as a cold front clips the far south, and another ridge extends across the state.
