The Goat’s Surf Forecast

Posted by: on March 7th, 2019

Surf forecast issued Thursday 7 March 2019: Seven day outlook for Sydney:

Looks like waves of sorts for the coming week, with the surf at times following the wind changes that are forecast, but a day behind… Could make it amusing or annoying…  Anyhoo..

Friday: somewhere in the 1-2 metre range sort of Eastish

Saturday: ditto North East

Sunday: down around 1 metre or so South East, then up a little North East

Monday: around 1 metre or so North East

Tuesday: ditto East South East

Wednesday: coming up at dead South places, say around 2 metres, but going down thru the day

Thursday: in the 1-2 metre range dead South

  • Water temp is showing on the MHL buoy as around 22.  I suspect that may be improving with the southerly change countering the effects of the recent Noreasters.
