Wobbly and mostly small but not flat

Posted by: on July 8th, 2019

Hello Friends,
A grey day in coastal California and it looked to be a grey start in Sydney as well. Swell was around 1.2 metres from the E by ESE at about 11 seconds apart and wind was coming lightly from the WNW. Size is probably going to be on the marginal side, but good exposures should have the odd chest high wave face I’d have thought.
Outlook remains for the energy levels to gradually fade to small to unsurfable by the end of the week according to both ECM and Wavewatch. Right now there seems to be a prospect of a reasonable pulse from around mid next weekend into the front half of next week… a long way out, so more a straw in the wind than anything…
There are a few postcards down the page, but the only places with waves are either 5 hours north or 5 hours south of here…
Have a top old Monday!

Weather Situation

A strong high pressure system over the western Tasman Sea is slowly moving northeast while a trough approaches from the west. This pattern has been directing east to southeasterly winds in the north, and northerly winds in the south. The trough will bring a south to southwesterly change to southern and central parts today and the north coast on Tuesday. Winds will tend west to northwesterly in the north later today ahead of the trough.
