Back in grey

Posted by: on October 10th, 2018

Hello Friends,

20 kts of southerly under dark grey skies as Wednesday rolled into view. The wind is beating up the surface conditions at Dee Why and the swell is still small and weak (it was 1.6 metres at 5 seconds from the south as of 0600). The Bureau tells us to expect it to increase across the day but the wind’ll blow hard from the south to SE for at least the next three days. Plus there’s near certainty of showers today. Missable in a word.

Swell’s expected to peak tomorrow but wind’s also set to be more SE, so my hopes are modest. And the long range outlook is for generally onshore conditions into next week. So, we’ll be looking to the corners for now.

Have a great day everyone!

Southerly herding the white horses past North Head

Not enough energy to make the point work

Weather Situation

A trough will move up the north coast today while a cold front to its south will follow in its steps. The trough will bring a south to southeasterly change to the north coast, while the front will strengthen these south to southeasterly winds. Both features will clear the far north coast early tomorrow. In their wake, a high pressure system south of the Bight is forecast to extend a ridge along the New South Wales Coast. As this high drifts eastward to the Tasman Sea toward the end of the week, winds are expected to tend east to northeasterly.

Forecast for Wednesday until midnight
