The Goat’s Surf Forecast

Posted by: on March 14th, 2019

Surf forecast issued Thursday 14 March 2019: Seven day outlook for Sydney:

The overriding feature of coming days appears to be rain, wind, and thunderstorms and more rain and wind and thunderstorms.

The surf?  It’ll be messy and you don’t want to be in the water when the thunderstorms are around, and the water will be dirty from the rain runoff.

It’ll be somewhere variously in the 1-2 metre range all week, from the East turning South East later in the week.  There’ll be light winds at times but with residual chop and all things considered I can’t imagine that anywhere will be attractive.  But of course some people will go in anyway,

Oh well we need the rain.

Check back next week.
