Looking flat as a tack this morning. The MHL data is showing nothing over a metre from its buoys dotted up and down the coast of NSW. As the picture shows, there was no hint of activity at Dee Why.
And the outlook? Well, it’s Friday morning, so there’s a nice fresh forecast from the mighty Goat awaiting your inspection…
Have a fine old Friday!
A series of cold fronts are expected to maintain vigorous westerly winds until later in the weekend, when a low pressure system moves over the southern Tasman Sea and winds then tend southwesterly. The slow movement of this low pressure system is likely to develop large waves later on the weekend.
