Windblown and junky

Posted by: on September 30th, 2018

Hello Friends,

Late start for your correspondent, so by the time I got to the beach at 1000, things were looking half-past ordinary. The wind had settled to the south (it’ll go SE later). Although it was 1.7 m from 165°, the windswell period was a shade under the 8-second mark. So, weak and gutless and close together wind blown slop. Tide was about 90 minutes away from the 1.6 m high when I grabbed the pics.

Should be a partly cloudy Sunday for us with a high of 19C and only a small chance of a sprinkle. About the only good news is that Beachwatch says the water’s up to 20C.

Still looking like a very small week ahead. Right now the models are showing the wind being light in the mornings and onshore by midday. From Thursday afternoon we go back into vigorous south wind conditions that could last right through into next week – when they swing more, wait for it, SE. Groan.

Looks like yours truly will be clocking up the k’s on the pushy….

Have a fine Sunday everyone!

Weather Situation

A pressure system over Victoria extends a ridge up the New South Wales coast as a low pressure trough over the Tasman Sea moves eastwards, bringing south to southeast winds to the Waters today. The high is drifting slowly east, and should be over the Tasman Sea by Monday.
