Keen only need apply

Hello friends,
Swell energy in Sydney continued to fade overnight and at first light magnets looked to be maybe knee to waist – on the big ones. Wind was lightly offshore for the early and tide was running out to the low at 0900. You can expect a mostly sunny day with a high of 27 along the beaches. Water temp’s at 25C according to Beachwatch. In the middle of the night the Sydney MHL buoy was seeing 1.4 metres of 7-8 second stuff from the SSE (150 degrees).
With any luck, the swell shouldn’t fade to zero over the remainder of the week, but from the look of the models it may not be much above marginal at most places most of the time.
California’s wave drought continues. It seems to be pretty much flat from Santa Cruz to LA, but with some tiny knee plusses south from there to the border. There does however seem to be a slight hope for an improvement in coming days. Who knows, I may get in the water yet…

Weather Situation

A high pressure system over the Tasman Sea is gradually weakening as a cold front passes to the south today and tomorrow. This will bring a southerly change to southern parts of the coast from late tonight and during Wednesday before a new high moves across from the west. The new high is then expected to stall over the Tasman Sea from late Wednesday, maintaining a ridge along the New South Wales coast for the remainder of the week.
