Like yesterday only warmer

Another weak start to a hot summer day

Hello Friends,
Yet another hazy warm morning ahead of a very warm day (going to 30 along the coast) but with no waves for Dee Why surfing interests. As the picture shows, there was only the slightest hint of a little wind bump this morning around 0830. Last night I had dinner in Manly and there seemed to be some very junky waist to chest high things coming in at South Steyne, so I thought there might be a few leftovers this morning. Instead, Dee Why is maybe knee high, weak, junky and being roughed up gradually by a light NE wind. By this afternoon it’ll be pushing along at a summer standard 15-25 kts, so who knows, maybe at a NE magnet spot…

Swell such as it is, is currently wafting in mainly from the NE at a metre or so with a gutless 6 second period.

Tomorrow is shaping to be a hotter version of today with maybe slightly more in the say of bumps for the extra keen dawn patrol

A south change overnight Thursday is still on the cards. And the models continue to show a boost in swell height with it. Should go into the 2-3 metre range as it fills in, but periods are a set to stay around the 8 second mark. Friday should be cooler but southerly all day under cloudy skies with junky waist to chest plusses at standout south spots…maybe!

Have a fine old day everyone!
