Not much doing on Friday morning

Zippo at No Mans 0815

Nothing obvious at Dee Why this morning

Hello Friends,

A dull old morning at Dee Why for Friday. No real sign of surfable waves either. According to the MNL data from 0600, it was 1.6 metres from the ESE at 6 seconds apart. So not a surprise the beach looks so blah.

Not that it matters all that much, but as I was writing this a little before 0900, wind was ENE at 7-9 kts just down the coast at North Head.

If you’re wondering what lies ahead on the surf front, then may I refer you to the latest from His Wiseness the Goat who posted his latest forecast yesterday evening…

Going to a top of 33C today and ocean is a refreshing – if windblown later – 21C.

Have a fine Friday!

Weather Situation

A high pressure system over the Tasman Sea is directing moderate to fresh east to northeasterly winds along most of the New South Wales Waters. A weak trough and associated southerly wind change is expected to move through the southern waters later today. Another stronger trough is expected to move through the southern half of the Waters Saturday morning, then extend to the Mid North Coast later Saturday, before stalling and weakening on Sunday. East to northeasterly winds are expected throughout by Monday evening as another high pressure system becomes established in the Tasman Sea.
