At first light wind was 10-15 kts from the SW under mostly clear skies. Swell was 0.8 m at 12 seconds from the south and tide was just coming off the low at 0600. Next tide is a 1.5 m high at 1210. Wind is set to stay SW until this evening.
Tomorrow should start out with okay wind but by late afternoon we’re set to go into a southerly regime for Wednesday. Surf outlook is not great. Tuesday morning might possibly see a little improvement over the current conditions, but Wednesday while bigger is going to be trashed by the wind. Right now it looks broadly speaking as though we could be waiting until the latter half of next week for a shot at reasonable surf prospects. Maybe.
Have yourself a great Monday one and all!
Northerly winds tending fresh to strong along the northern waters ahead of a weak trough over the southern Waters.
