Little bumps for Sunday morning

Posted by: on December 30th, 2018

Soft little things at 0800

Set lights up Dee Why at 0800


Hello Friends,

Warming up as we head to a high of 32 along the coast today. Wind was coming from the NW when I grabbed the pics at 0800, but it should swing to north before settling to the NE and ramping up into the 15-20 kt range. There were a few bods in the water at Dee Why chasing soft and gutless little knee to maybe waist high waves on an outgoing tide (low is at 0942). Not exactly crowded (which tells you something about the quality), but nice to be getting wet in the 21° ocean.
Out at sea the MHL buoy was seeing 1.7 m of 7-sec stuff from the ESE along with the residual NE bump from yesterday’s wind.
New Year’s eve and New Year’s day look like being similar to today’s conditions – ie soft and gutless little stuff for the early then blowing out in the afternoon. Beyond that, the long range models are not encouraging, although there does seem to be at least a hope of someting slightly bigger and jucier for Sunday-Monday (wind a factor of course).
Have a great Sunday everyone!

Weather Situation
A high pressure system lies stationary over the Tasman Sea, extending a ridge towards northeast New South Wales and directing north to northeasterly winds over most coastal areas. This pattern will change very little during the next few days, although a couple of troughs will bring a southerly change to southern waters today. A more persistent southerly change is likely to push into central parts of the coast early in the new week.
