Dull old Saturday morning

Posted by: on March 9th, 2019

Hello Friends,

Light NW wind wafting into the beaches under heavily overcast skies as the day started. The wind will pick up soon and be into the 15-20 kt range from the north ahead of a midday south change. Swell was coming from the ESE at sea as of 0400 – but it was only 1.3 metres offshore at 8 seconds apart. The results were not exciting at Dee Why as of 0700. A few people were in the waster waiting hopefully, but wave faces were struggling to make much above knee to waist. At least the water is around 24.

Tide is coming in to a 1.6 m high at 1055. There’s also a 70% chance of a shower.

Not the most exciting look to the surf prospects for my first week back home. Basically it looks marginal to flat until about Wednesday when all of the models are showing a brief spike into the surfable range (1-2 metres at 8-9 seconds from the SE), which may deliver waist to chest with plusses at magnets. Unfortunately it looks as though there’ll be SE wind with it, so I’m only cautiously hopeful.

The very long range modelling currently suggests that week after next could see a lot of south wind and swell into the 2-3 metre range…

Have a great Saturday everyone, it’s good to be home again.

Only a hint of a bump up the beach toward No Mans at 0700

Too tiny to surf at Dee Why this morning

Weather Situation
A high pressure system over the central Tasman Sea extends a ridge towards northeast New South Wales, and is directing east to northeasterly winds along most of the northern half and central parts of the coast. Over the far southern parts, a trough has established a southerly flow and a weak low is expected to develop offshore within this trough today. This setup will extend the southerly change through the central parts of the coast before dissipating on Sunday. The next significant cold front looks set to arrive in the middle of the coming week.
