Another beautiful – but waveless – morning for the Northern Beaches.
Outlook hasn’t really improved this morning. It still looks like being flat to maybe knee high on the bombs for the next week according to both the Wavewatch and ECM models. The very long range predictions show a slight hope for a south bump mid to late next week, but the models are also showing heaps of south wind with it.
As mentioned earlier, I’ll be in California postcard mode by this weekend, and from a quick scan of the surf prospects, it doesn’t look like the wave situation there will be much better than here. Of course it’s summer, so there is that.
Have yourself a top old Tuesday everyone!
A broad high pressure system over the Tasman Sea will maintain a ridge toward the New South Wales Coast over the next few days. On Wednesday winds will shift north to northwesterly, freshening in the south, ahead of the next cold front. This front will cause winds to shift west to southwesterly during Thursday and Friday.
