Again we have little lines coming into the Dee Why end of the beach. As of 0720 when I took the pictures, there was just the faintest NE zephyr whispering over the lumpy surface. It’ll come up to 15-25 kts later as we head to a high of 31C along the beaches. Tide is currently dropping to a 0.67 low at 1100. The afternoon high of 1.28 m arrives at 1655. The 0500 MHL data showed 1.9 m of 6.7 second SE dribble along with a dusting of equally short period NE chop. Ocean temp is still on 20C according to Beachwatch.
The ECM model predicts no real change through the coming 7 days, but the Wavewatch model shows some hope for some NE windswell late Friday.into early Saturday morning. But then it too shows a return to near flatness as we get into the weekend – and beyond.
Gotta hang in there surfers! At least we’re another day closer to the next proper swell.
Go well with your Wednesday one and all.
