Smooth and small early

Posted by: on April 11th, 2019

Hello Friends,

The odd light shower passing by at 0700 this morning when I had my first look at the conditions for the day ahead. Dee Why was lightly populated; a couple of folks at the point, a few on SUPs patrolling around and several people up the beach toward No Mans. Size looked to be in the knee to waist range and it didn’t seem to be too consistent. A low key start to Thursday in other words.
Wind down at North Head was out of the west at 6-7 kts and out at sea the MHL buoy was seeing 1.4 metres from 155° at 9 seconds apart as of 0600.

Next tide is a 1.3m high at 1240. Weahter should be partly cloudy with a chance of a shower out on the coast as we head to a high of 21C – which is the same as the sea temperature at the moment. Beachwatch is showing pretty much everywhere as having good water quality.

I’m not too excited about this morning’s swell forecast models, so I’m keeping my fingers crossed for the Goat’s call latter today. From my reading we’re in for very small to near flat conditions through the weekend and beyond.

Have a great Thursday everyone!

Weather Situation

A high pressure system moving over southeast Australia today is pushing a ridge along the New South Wales coast, while a trough lies over the state’s west. The high is expected to reach the Tasman Sea by Friday, after which time it will gradually weaken as a cold front passes to the south. A new, stronger high is forecast to move across the southern Tasman Sea from Sunday onwards.
