Interesting little perk in energy

Posted by: on March 28th, 2019

Hello Friends,

Swell seems to have come up a little overnight and is now into the rideable range with both the point and the beach seeing waist high sets. The MHL buoy shows that the swell hasn’t increased in size particualrly (it’s around 1.4 metres from the dead south) but the period ranges from 9 to 15 seconds. Water out at the buoy is 24C.

First tide of the day is a low at 0940 and the high rolls back in at 1535.

Being a Thursday, we can look forward to the Goat’s thoughts on the surf week ahead, so I’ll just say that I’m going to be interested on his take on Sunday’s prospects. The ECM and GFS are both showing W-SW wind for the morning, but Wavewatch is showing a more interesting swell prediction (south 2.5 metres @12s) than the ECM ( south 1.7m @ 8s).

Have a top old Thursday one and all!

Weather Situation

A high pressure system over the central Tasman Sea will move east towards New Zealand during the next couple of days, extending a ridge to the north coast, and bringing a southeast to northeast flow to the New South Wales waters. A cold front will bring a strong and gusty southwesterly wind change to southern parts of the coast on Saturday before extending north on Sunday.
