Yay sunny, boo puny

Hazy, lazy morning

Tiny, just catchable bumps at 0820

Hello Friends,

A hazy start to the day, but nice to have a sunny one again after our run of gloom. Wind was light SSE (3kts) as of 0800 at North Head. There were a couple of bods in the water just up from the club when I grabbed the pics this morning at 0820. As you can see, the surface conditions were smooth but the line was rather indistinct on account of the tide (1.75 m high at 1030) and the slight south-SSE swell (1.1 metres at 10 sec apart from 165° as of  0600). There’s a 60% chance of a light shower later and we should see 29C on the coast. Apart from North Curly lagoon entrance, Beachwatch says all beaches are clean and sea temp is still on 19C.

If the NEr does its thing into the evening hours, there’s a likelihood that tomorrow’s surf options will be similar to today’s. And if the models are accurately fortelling our fates for the next few days, the morning sessions should produce a little something – but the emphasis is on little. None of this morning’s modelling suggests any significant change to the basic swell size settings.

Have yourself a top old Tuesday everybody!

 

Weather Situation

A high pressure system over the Tasman Sea extends a ridge towards southeast Queensland, generating north to northeasterly winds along the far north coast of New South Wales. The next southerly change is expected along the southern and central coast on Wednesday.
