Looks flat as a tack this morning. Plus there was 10-12 kts of NW wind from early. The wind will pick up as the day goes along, which insures continued flatness thanks to the swell being a mere 0.6 metre SSE at 10 seconds.
Okay, that’s the bad news.
The good news is that we should see swell from tomorrow and, on current reckoning, it ought to last through the weekend. The big catch is that the wind will be very strong, although offshore.
So clear the decks and let’s see how things look on Thursday.
A front moving through New South Wales today is generating vigorous winds along southern and central parts of the coast. Winds tend south to southwesterly and gradually ease from Thursday as a strong high pressure system over the Bight extends a ridge towards eastern New South Wales and becomes the dominant weather feature for the remainder of the week.
