Sunny skies

Posted by: on October 9th, 2018

Hello Friends,

A change from the recent rainy conditions as this morning sees sunny conditions with a light westerly breeze. Sadly the swell has dialled back at Dee Why. At 0500 the MHL buoy was seeing 1.2 m from the ESE (127°) at 10 seconds. There might be a little more energy showing at better exposed stretches but where Dee Why’s concerned it’s too small for the poiint and the beachy wasn’t looking too populated either. Tide hits a 1.7 m high at 0910 and then heads back to low at 1515.

Weather should start to cloud up later and there’s a 20% chance of rain later. The showers return tomorrow along with the southerlies. And the swell should start to come back up during the morning. Expectations for a major south swell event have changed pretty dramatically downward from predictions just a day or two ago. The latest projections are calling for a couple of metres from the south in the 9-10 second range from Thursday into next week. It looks as though wind will be steadily onshore during the period in question – unfortunately.

Ah well, at least there’s the hope of some scrappy stuff for the extra keen.


Fading but still little lines coming in


Not quite big enough to make the point work at 0745

Weather Situation

A weak low pressure system off the Illawarra coast will gradually move southeast away from New South Wales today. At the same time, a strong high pressure system over the Bight is expected to push a ridge along the south coast later today, then along the north coast tomorrow. As a result, winds will shift south to southeasterly along whole coast over the next day or two. Winds are forecast to tend east to southeasterly on Thursday and Friday as the high drifts from the Bight to the Tasman Sea.

Westerly below 10 knots, tending northeasterly 10 to 15 knots in the afternoon the shift south to southeasterly in the late evening.
