Beautiful summer morning but waves are another matter

Tiny wave at Kiddies

Sunny morning but looking flat 0740

Hello Friends,

A big 2.07 m high tide peaking just before 1000 and less than a metre of SSE swell are combining to produce very tiny to flat conditions at Dee Why. Ocean is 21C according to Beachwatch, so at least it should be nice for a dip even if there is no reason to take a board along. Should be sunny all day as we look to a 30C high this afternoon.

Surf outlook is still pretty dire. The swell prediction models are uniformly glum, with the most hopeful showing a slight uptick tomorrow into the knee high range. From next weekend and into next week, the consensus looks to be knee to waist give or take, but no real signs of anything more significant.

Enjoy your Tuesday everyone!

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. A trough is forecast to bring a moderate southerly change to the southern waters early Wednesday and is expected to extend to the central waters during the day. This trough will weaken on Thursday as the Tasman high asserts its dominance and winds will tend to the north again during Friday.
