High cloud but not high waves

0730 and tiny at Dee Why

Hello Friends,

Was hoping to see a little more energy this morning, but as of 0730 Dee Why was seeing 9-11 kts of NNE breeze and no real sign of anything surfable. The MHL buoy was seeing 1.5 m of 7-sec bump from the NE as well as some equally weak stuff from the SE.

The wind will pick up from the north and get into the 15-25 kt range before a 20-39 kt south change late in the afternoon.  Unfortunately it doesn’t look as though we’ll get any significant improvement to the surf intensity until after dark. Tomorrow should see more south swell out at sea, but period’s predicted to be around the 8 second mark, so we probably won’t see anything much away from the south magnets. And even there, the biggest spots are going to be smashed by onshores too.

It’ll be interesting to see what the Goat says later today….

We’re going to 38 along the coast today and UV will be extreme from 0900 to 1720. So protect your skin, take care and stay hydrated.

 

 

 

Weather Situation

A weakening high pressure system near New Zealand extends a ridge towards the northern New South Wales coast, while a trough extends diagonally from the state’s northwest to southeast. This trough will become mobile today as a cold front passes to the south, bringing a gusty southerly change to southern and central parts of the coast. The trough is expected to stall and weaken on the northern coast during Friday as a new high shifts from the Bight to the Tasman Sea, resulting in a gradual return to northeasterly winds along most of the coast during the weekend.
