Windy, grey and small again

Posted by: on October 24th, 2018

Hello Friends,

Turned southerly last night and this morning sees us back to heavily overcast skies and 15-25 kts of S-SSW wind. Out at sea the swell height zipped up to 2 metres as the change came through. But as of 0300 it was only 7 seconds apart. So, choppy and tiny.

The gutless wind affected tininess doesn’t look likely to change across the day unfortunately. And near term prospects according to the models aren’t very interesting either. Tomorrow looks sad, but Friday the cloud should break up, the winds should go offshore for the dawn patrol and there might possibly even be a little tiny something at spots that like east wind bump. I’m thinking ankle to knee with the odd waist if it works out. Beyond that a couple of the models are predicting slightly more interesting prospects for Mon-Tue of next week.

Not sure if I’ll be in a position to file a report tomorrow as I’ll be heading to the airport for my trip to California.

Have yourself a great day everyone!

Back to grey and tiny conditions

 

No real activity at the point or Kiddies as ot 0625

 

 

 

Weather Situation

Northeasterly winds are expected along the north coast ahead of an approaching cold front, which has brought a southerly change to southern and central waters overnight and will reach the north coast today. Winds will begin to turn northeasterly again during Thursday, as a high pressure system moves from the Bight to the Tasman Sea in the wake of the front. A second cold front is expected to bring another southerly change on Friday.

Forecast for Wednesday until midnight
