Short and not so sweet: it’s flat and rainy this morning.
Outlook varies a little between the ECM and Wavewatch driven models, with the latter being a little more optimistic about the prospects late in the week when they see a long period south pulse on Thursday into Friday.
As always, we’ll see what happens… but for today and tomorrow, it’s near flat wherever you look. Have a top old day everybody!
Ahead of a strong front winds are north to northwesterly. The front is forecast to bring a fresh to strong south to southwesterly change to the southern half of the coast today that will continue through to the far north coast on Tuesday. A high pressure ridge is expected to build in the wake of the front during Tuesday and Wednesday as a high centre to the west drifts across south-eastern Australia, with winds tending east to southeasterly.
