TG’s Surf Forecast

Posted by: on February 22nd, 2019

Surf forecast issued Thursday 21 February 2019: Seven day outlook for Sydney:

TC Oma is up north but is affecting the weather and surf outlook depending on where she decides to go and the interaction with a High and a Low down south. At the moment she’s tracking here

  1. She can always change her mind but based on the present situation the surf outlook for here (it’ll be bigger and messier up north, but could get nasty in  a lot of places) … The weather here has that tropical feel to it but Note the direction of the main swell for us in Sydney.. mainly from the south/east south east than coming down from Oma up north. Interesting days ahead:

Friday: in the 1-2 metre range at dead South places and starting to come up from the south during the day

Saturday: 1-2 metres, 2ish metres and increasing through the day East South East

Sunday: 2-3, 3-4 metres at dead South places

Note the BoM warning: Large and powerful surf conditions are expected to be hazardous for coastal activities such as rock fishing, swimming and surfing. Surf Life Saving NSW recommends only swimming at patrolled beaches and between the red and yellow flags. (That’s if they’re up!)

Monday: 3-4 metres East South East

Tuesday: 2-3 metres East South East

Wednesday: 2-3 metres East North East, with sets

Thursday: 2-2+ metres East North East

ALL SUBJECT TO CHANGE as the spinning tops move around

Take care. Stay safe.
