Lake Dee Why

Posted by: on August 9th, 2018

Hello Friends,

Another perfect winter’s day in Sydney. Dee Why fairly sparkled at 0700 when I grabbed the daily pics. But, alas, beautiful as the day promises to be, there was absolutely no hint of a wave. Nor is there any prospect in the Bureau’s predictions for an immediate improvement.

MHL’s Sydney buoy was detecting 0.7 m of 12 sec from the SSE (152°), so no hint yet of the predicted long period east component the models have been showing for a few days now.

As always, I’m keen to see the Goat’s thoughts on the prospects for the coming week because at least a couple of the models are showing some small hope.

Have a great Thursday and be sure to check back this evening for the Goat’s forecast!

Flatter than yesterday, or as flat?
