The Goat’s Surf Forecast

Surf forecast issued Thursday 2 May 2019: Seven day outlook for Sydney:

Some rain and showers forecast over the weekend, but there might be some South swell later on from a Low that’s expected to develop off the South Coast.

Friday: in the 1-2 metre range East North East, going down through the day

Saturday: around 1 metre or so East at first before a SW/S/SE wind change pushes up some little messy South swell

Sunday: up in the 1-2 metre range South East with messy S/SW wind

Monday: coming up around 2-3 metre range at places open to dead South swell and wind… a bit might get into protected corners

Tuesday: easing a little, but still around 2- 2+ metres at places open to dead South swell before easing back later

Wednesday: … then a little bit of North East windswell, in the 1-2 metre range

Thursday: .. and then down as the wind blows it out to sea… before some SSW swell might develop

Keeping up ??

Hope you find something suitable.
