Choppy and showery start to the day

Posted by: on March 14th, 2019

Hello Friends,

Mild with 15-20 kts NE wind under solidly overcast skies when I climbed aloft to grab a picture for you this morning. At 0500 the MHL buoy was seeing 1.3 metres of 5-second ENE wind bump. As you can see below, there’s more activity than the last couple of days, but it’s not looking surfable and I couldn’t see anyone trying either. Not that it matters much, but the tide will be low at 0850 this morning – and then back to high at 1445. There’s a 95% chance of showers as we head to a high of 24.

Tomorrow will be rainy as well and from the look of the models, there won’t be any positive change to the surf prospects. The Bureau says we’ll have more swell, but the models show it being short period. As always, I’m keen to see what the Goat’s take is on our prospects later today…

Go well with your day everyone!

Light NE wind plus a metre of east-ish wind swell in the 1.3 metre range at 0735
