Heavy overcast with tiny scrappy waves

Posted by: on April 5th, 2019

Hello Friends,

Dark and showery skies as Friday started along the Northern Beaches. Wind was out of the SE at 16-21 kts as of 0710. Waves looked to be in the knee high range with the odd plus at Dee Why. There were a few people in the water, but I didn’t catch anyone on a wave when I grabbed the snaps. At 0400 the MHL buoy was seeing a mix of NNE and south swell – with the latter dominating. It was 2 metres at 9.5 seconds and coming from 164°. Wind is set to be about the current strength all day.

Outlook for the next week you ask? Ah, well, may I refer you to the Goat’s freshly baked forecast

Have a top old Friday everyone!

Not quite flat but for the keen only

Small and choppy lines up the beach at 0710
