Smaller but surfable

Posted on June 21st, 2018 in Dee Why.

Hello Friends,

Gloomy grey skies and the odd shower as Thursday got underway along the beaches. Swell energy levels have cogged down significantly since yesterday, but conditions are generally much cleaner too. People at the point and along the beach were getting waist to maybe shoulder high set waves when I checked for the first time at 0745.
At report writing time the wind was 6-7 kts from the WSW. Tide was dropping to a 0.47 m low at 0900. The 1.5 m high happens at 1520. Beachwatch ways the water should be much better today.
MHL’s Sydney buoy was showing 2.3 metres of 10-sec SSE (156°) swell. Beachwatch says water temp is 19C.
Outlook you ask? Well the Goat’s your man!
Go well with your day and keep on smilin’!

The Goat’s Surf Forecast

Posted on June 20th, 2018 in Goat's Forecast.

Surf forecast issued Wednesday 20 June 2018: Seven day outlook for Sydney:

Early forecast this week..

Why?..

Just because I can..

It feels like it’s been cold and wet and windy forever, and it’s only been a couple of days!  Surf conditions have been less than attractive for most people and, as I haven’t seen any whales at all for the last couple of days (previous days random counts 27, 15, 41..), I suspect they too are sheltering from the unpleasant ocean conditions, in protected corners or bays, before continuing their northward journey.

But with weather conditions generally improving over coming days there could be some surfable waves for the keen people, and whales might start to appear again.  The surf outlook looks like this:

Thursday: easing back from today, but still in the upper 1-2 metre range East South East

Friday: ditto (TG is a goat of few words)

Saturday: dittoish, maybe down slightly, but still with sets

Sunday: could be a little change in direction, with waves starting to come up in the 1-2 metre range from dead South at those places that are open to them

Monday: upper end of the 1-2 metre range at places open to dead South swell

Tuesday: ditto

Wednesday: ditto again.

Hope you have a good one.

Rough and messy morning

Posted on June 20th, 2018 in Dee Why.

Hello Friends,

15-20 kts of SSE wind ripping it to shreds this morning at Dee Why. As the pictures show, conditions are far from flat, but there’s definitely some swell. The MHL buoy was seeing 3.7 m of 10-second SSE (156°) swell under almost as much chop. The at times heavy rain last night resulted in Sydney water notifying Surfrider Foundation that partially treated discharge from Warriewood STP occured at 1945 yesterday evening and that flows were receiving wet water treatment. Beachwatch has hoisted the Pollution-likely warning for most of Sydney beaches. Given the woeful surf quality along with the prospect of encountering unsavoury microbes, makes it an easy day to advise taking a pass.

Tomorrow the Bureau tells us the wind will be S-SE again as the swell starts to fade back. Friday morning looks a more hopeful prospect as the wind decreases in intensity (but stays out of the easterly quarters). And it looks from the models as though surfable conditions should prevail through Sunday.

Have a great Wednesday everyone!

Typical wave at 0700

Bomb set fills in about 0715

Weather Situation

A low pressure system near New Zealand with a trough to the northwest is slowly moving east and weakening and a high pressure system is moving towards Tasmania. As the high pressure system becomes the dominant feature over the next few days, winds over the waters will gradually ease.

Forecast for Wednesday until midnight

Winds
Southerly 15 to 20 knots.
Seas
1.5 to 2 metres, decreasing to 1 metre around midday.
Swell
Southerly 3 metres, tending southeasterly 2.5 to 3 metres during the morning.
Weather
Partly cloudy.
Caution
Large and powerful surf conditions in the early morning are expected to be hazardous for coastal activities such as crossing bars by boat and rock fishing.

Thursday 21 June

Winds
South to southeasterly about 10 knots increasing to 10 to 15 knots early in the morning then becoming variable about 10 knots in the evening.
Seas
Below 1 metre.

It was a dark and stormy morning…

Posted on June 19th, 2018 in At large.

Hello Friends,

You’d want to be keen given the chilly, windy, rainy conditions this morning. There is swell and the wind was 15-20 kts at North Head when I grabbed the snaps. The Bower looked pretty clean but only waist to chest on sets. Plus there was the occasional lightning strike out at sea… a few bods were testing their immune systems up at Queensie where set waves were into the head plus range and surface conditions clean. Freshy was overwhelmed by the swell and no one was silly enough to be in the water. Likewise, Curly was big but somewhat chaotic and therefore empty. A couple of bodyboarders were having a go at the point, but the swell was lumpy and sectiony and again, not a terribly attractive proposition. Didn’t see anyone in the water from there north to Longy. Very small and clean at Collaroy and no takers.
The MHL buoy was showing 4.7 metres at 11 seconds from the SSE (158°) as of 0700. So the bulk of the energy is staying out to sea. Swell should be hitting its peak around now and then it’ll gradually drop back to below the 3 me mark tomorrow. As it fades slowly on Thursday, the models show the direction going more SE, so we should see solid conditions into the weekend. Wind predictions show the velocity dropping as it gets more westerly. Could be good….
Have a great Tuesday everyone!

Weather Situation
A low pressure system near New Zealand with a trough to the northwest is slowly moving east and weakening and a high pressure system is moving towards Tasmania. The two systems are directing vigorous southwest to southeasterly winds along the New South Wales coast. Winds will ease later today as the high moves over the southwestern Tasman Sea extending a ridge along the coast.

Blowy old Monday

Posted on June 18th, 2018 in Dee Why.

Hello Friends,
20-25 kts of WSW wind meant surface conditions were pretty clean at Dee Why. Unfortunately the swell is
only 7 seconds apart, so although it’s 2 metres or so out at sea and coming from the south, the wind is holding it offshore. Eden buoy was picking up 3 metres of dead south swell this morning and the Bureau tells us we can expect the energy to get here by this evening. The wind is going to belt along at 30-40 kts from the w to sw, and there’s a high likelihood of rain, but given the forecast, I reckon there could be some surfable stuff in the protected corners soon. I’ll keep an eye on it and if possible will update.
Tide was low at 0610 and will be back to a 1.45 m high at 1220.
Outlook is for the wind to be straight south by tomorrow and to stay that way through to Thursday. The models have the swell peaking tonight and then gradually decreasing across the coming week. The good news – apart from the wind – is that waves should stay in the surfable range into the weekend.
Have yourself a good Monday everyone!

Clean in the south corners, but not much energy

Weather Situation
A complex low pressure system in the southern Tasman Sea will slowly move east over the coming days. A south to southwesterly change will move up the coast from the south and strengthen on Monday. By the middle of the week, winds are expected to ease as the low moves closer to New Zealand. A high centred south of the Bight will move to the southern Tasman Sea on Tuesday and persist for the remainder of the week.

Forecast for Monday until midnight
Gale Warning for Monday for Sydney Coast
Winds
West to southwesterly 30 to 35 knots tending south to southwesterly 30 to 40 knots early in the morning.

Utter flatness for Sunday

Posted on June 17th, 2018 in Dee Why.

Hello Friends,

Another day to find some non-surfing activity to keep yourself fit. Ocean was flat to the horizon thanks to 5-10 kts of NW wind and 0.7 m of 11-sec south bump. Pretty good conditions for whale spotting though. It didn’t take me long to see a splash about 5 km offshore but, even with the 600 mm lens on my D750, it was only just visible in the picture posted below…

As you can see from the forecast below, Huey is going to throw the switch to gales and showers tomorrow. Swell will build from the south across the day and is set to be in the 2-4 m range by the time the sun is setting. The blasting southerlies and big swell will continue into Tuesday before fading back on Wednesday. With any luck we’ll have more favourable wind settings and some swell for Thursday-Friday.

Have yourself a fine old Sunday everyone!

Weather Situation
A series of cold fronts are crossing southeastern Australia as a low pressure system slowly moves to the south of Tasmania and establishes itself in the Tasman Sea. A south to southwesterly change will move up the coast from the south and strengthen on Monday as the low moves into the Tasman Sea. By the middle of the week, winds are expected to ease as the low moves closer to New Zealand.

Clear skies and flat seas

Posted on June 16th, 2018 in At large.

Hello Friends,

Went for a picture run ahead of this morning’s radio spot on 702 ABC. As expected the ocean looks like a lake. I did see an ankle high wave caught at North Narrabeen, but around at Dee Why there was no chance of replicating that feat. So, no surf for us today, sadly.

To put some numbers on it, at 0500 the Sydney region MHL buoy was detecting only 0.7 m of extremely feeble 6-second SSE (160°) wind bump offshore. Just before the sun came over the horizon, wind was 7-10 kts from the NW. Tide was a very low 0.2 m at 0415 and will reach a 1.5 m high at 1020.
Outlook is for the abject flatness to persist all weekend as powering westerlies smash the tiny south bump across the next 48 hours. And then, on Monday the wind is set to go from west to SW but not to back off while at the same time a fresh south pulse tries to get to us. As noted in the Goat’s outlook, it’s an open question as to how much energy will actually make it to the south magnets by Monday afternoon. By Tuesday the wind is forecast to be coming from the south at 25-30 kts as the swell peaks in the 3-4 metre range with a 10 sec period. Right now it looks as though we’ll be waiting until around Thursday for the southerly to blow itself out and for conditions to settle into something more approachable…
Have a great Saturday everyone!

Don’t miss Vivid!

Flattish Friday

Posted on June 15th, 2018 in Dee Why.

Hello Friends,
8-10 kts of NNW wind blowing out across a wine dark sea under largely cloudless skies as the sun came over the horizon and our Friday got underway. Out at sea MHL’s Sydney buoy was bobbing listlessly on a 9 second period 0.8 m SSE (158°) wind swell. Not that it mattered much, but tide was coming into a 1.52 m high at 0925. It’ll be back to a 0.43 m low at 1505. As the forecast below notes, the wind’ll pick up and go more westerly in the afternoon. But the swell will persist in its indolence.
So what’s ahead for us? Well, as he has for nigh on two decades, the Goat has cogitated on the prospects and produced his weekly outlook for our edification and planning.
Have yourself a great Friday one and all!

The Goat’s Surf Forecast

Posted on June 14th, 2018 in Goat's Forecast.

Surf forecast issued Thursday 14 June 2018: Seven day outlook for Sydney:

Most people seemed to be happy that the weather and waves of the past week have passed by, judging by the number of smiling faces who turned up today at the right tide/time combination, despite the chilly wind.  The water temp was fine.

A deceptive little surf.  It looked flat to very small early on, then lines started to show, but the waves were still pleasantly sized and quality brushed by the offshore wind…

Until the sets arrived every so often, with a size and punch quite different to the average (after you left Ray).

If you were unfortunate to be under them (tick, more than once) you had a good workout today…which meant some of us had lower than desirable energy levels when more suitable waves came. Those who caught ’em had fun.  But all that wasn’t long lasting and by twilight it looked like it had calmed down a lot.

Friday: should have calmed down even more than today, say to about 1 metre or so North East, but there should be a little pulse at times from the East

Saturday: W/NW/N winds will eventually flatten it, but there maybe little NE waves.. (or maybe not)

Sunday: waves out to sea, headed toward NZ, but inshore it’ll be all calm.  Disappointing, but you won’t really be disappointed with a 14 max air temp forecast and the windchill keeping that down to an UncomfortableforanAussie level

Monday: what happens from here depends on what a Low expected to form down south does…possibly starting some SW swell.  Got that? SW swell_ not much happening inshore at first… then building up later through the day, and into the night while you’re asleep

Tuesday: Depending on the Low… could be in the 2-3 metre range , or more, at places open to dead South swell… with wind (or not, if it goes somewhere else)

Wednesday: Ditto proviso… maybe 2-3 metres South East, with wind

Thursday: could be similar South East, with some punchy sets.

The whales have started up again in earnest after the rough conditions… saw 9 today, between 5-15 ks out and moving along, keen to get to their holiday up north.

Just about zippo at Dee Why

Posted on June 14th, 2018 in Dee Why.

Hello Friends,

It’s about the same size as yesterday morning, so if you found anything then, the plan is to check the same spot again. The MHL buoy was seeing a metre of 11-sec bump from the SSE (166°). Skies were largely clear and wind was 7-9 kts from the NW at North Head as of 0710. Water’s around 20° and the first tide of the daylight hours is a 1.48 m high at 0830. Low is 0.22 m at 1400.
The Goat should be along later today to offer his wisdom, so I’m keen to see what he thinks about the coming week. ECM is showing solid south for us from late Monday – unfortunately it looks like being accompanied by very strong winds.
Have yourself a great Thursday and check back this afternoon for the Goat’s call!
