Grey and still very small

A few people in the water up the beach from the club at 0800

Another quiet day at Dee Why

Hello Friends,

Not much going on at Dee Why on a cloudy Sunday morning. There were a few folks on rescue boards training up the beach from the club, but I didn’t see anyone else in the water. Wind was light SSW 5-7 kts early, but should go around to the SE and pick up 10-15 kts in the afternoon. The Sydney MHL buoy is off the air, but looking at the numbers from stations north and south of us, it’s probably around a metre at 7-8 seconds from the south.

Tide hit a swampy 1.93 m high as I was writing this at 0815. We’re headed to a high along the coast of 26C. It should stay cloudy and there’s a 20% chance of the odd light shower. Water is 21C and Beachwatch says all ocean beaches are likely to be clean.

Outlook is for surf conditions to remain at the current low ebb until Wednesday when the models suggest we might see something in the knee to waist high range (as opposed to the current ankle to knee high stuff). Beyond that, the outlook is not terribly hopeful. The general trends are pointing to ankle to knee short period dribble through to February… on your behalf I hope that’s wrong!

Have a happy Sunday everyone!

Weather Situation

A high pressure system over the Tasman Sea is weakening, while a trough on the northern New South Wales coast has stalled and is beginning to decay. A new high will shift from the Bight to the Tasman Sea over the next day or so, bringing a return to northerly winds in most coastal areas during Monday and Tuesday. The next trough and southerly change are expected to affect southern and central waters mid-week.
