Scrappy leftovers

Posted by: on August 31st, 2018

Hello Friends,

Swell faded steadily overnight and while there are still sets at the point, everyone was at Kiddies chasing waist high bumps. Wind was NNE 10-13 kts inshore and looking at the white horses out at sea, I’d say it’s twice that strength. The Bureau’s calling for 20-30 kts N-NE soon, so surf options will be retreating to the north corners. Swell’s gone a touch more to the south (158°) and was still 2.2 metres at 10.5 seconds as of 0600.

Surf prospects for the weekend don’t look great, particularly on Saturday. Next week the models are showing another southerly influx but while there should be a couple metres of swell – more or less – the wind looks like being southerly until midweek. If I had to pick a day, it’d be next Wednesday… but we shall see.

Have a great Friday everyone!

Weather Situation

A high pressure system lies over the western Tasman Sea as a slow-moving cold front enters western New South Wales, preceded by strengthening northerly winds. This front looks set to bring a gusty westerly change to coastal areas later today or early tomorrow, with winds shifting southerly during the weekend as a new high develops to the west. A coastal trough is expected to form about the northern coast on Monday.
