Near flat and that’s that

Posted by: on January 21st, 2019

Hello Friends,

A 2.2 metre high tide at 0900 combined with less than a metre of short period south bump meant no real prospect of a surfable wave at Dee Why – or anywhere else in Sydney. Throw in grey skies and a good chance of the odd shower this morning and it looks like an excellent day to be getting on with the non-surfing part of your life.

Some of the models are pointing to a very slight increase into the (potentially) surfable range on Wednesday and most of them project a more hopeful, but sitll modest uptick for the weekend, particularly on Sunday.

Have a top old Monday!

 

 

Weather Situation

A high pressure system lies over the Tasman Sea, while a trough stretches from central Australia through western New South Wales. This pattern will bring northerly winds to most coastal areas today and Tuesday. A trough is forecast to bring a fairly weak southerly change to southern and central waters mid-week, which should quickly decay as the Tasman high asserts its dominance.
