Surfless in Sydney, super small in So Cal

Posted by: on July 12th, 2019

Hello Friends,

Looks like a great day to catch up on the non-surfing aspects of your life today in Sydney. Not that it matters, but wind was 10-25kts from the NNW at a little after 0700. The Sydney buoy hasn’t reported in since midnight, but from the shape of the other reports, you’re probably into the sub one metre at sea zone. Tide’s heading to a low at 1025 and the wind is set to pick up as the day goes along. Not much hope of a wave today, but have a look at the Goat’s latest because he has some glad tidings to share…

Postcards below…

Weather Situation

Vigorous west to northwesterly winds are being generated ahead of a cold front. This front will bring a vigorous southwesterly change to southern parts late tonight and extend north on Saturday. A second front is forecast to clip southeastern Australia late Sunday and early Monday. After this, winds will gradually ease as a high pressure system slowly approaches from the west.
