You know yesterday? Like that, ie sunny, chilly with a light NW breeze and long but very tiny lines that are really too tiny to make surf. As of 0700 the MHL buoy was showing 1.1 metres of 14-second SSE swell. From the look of the swell models and the Bureau’s predictions, there isn’t likely to be an imporvement today.
It should be cloudy later and by tomorrow the south wind and swell will be filling in. The weather should be partly cloudy and there’s a high chance of a shower.
The showery and southerly conditions are set to persist through Wednesday, but with luck there should better conditions on Thursday as the wind gets a little more SW.
FWIW some of the models are showing interesting prospects for the start of next week. That’s a long way out, but we always like to see at least the hope of something good coming our way…
Have a great Monday everyone!
A front will skim across southeast New South Wales during today, bringing west to southwesterly winds to most coastal areas, before continuing across the Tasman Sea. Behind this, a new high is forecast to strengthen in the Bight and extend a ridge across Bass Strait, delivering a stronger southerly airstream to the New South Wales coast from Tuesday. The high is likely to be very slow-moving during the second half of the week, eventually reaching the Tasman Sea on the weekend.
