Rather smal, gutlessl and inconsistent, but there were definitely little moments of energy at the Dee Why to Longy stretch as of 0630. Wind was a barely-there NW breeze and out at sea the MHL buoy was seeing 1.4 metres of 13 second bump from the SE. Water’s still on 18C but we’re headed for a very warm 33C air temp today. Tide was low a little before 0600 and will be back to a 1.6 m high at 1230.
The light wind will pick up this morning ahead of a midday south change. So, better get down there quick smart.
As for the outlook, well the amazingly reliable Goat has posted his predictions for the week ahead and as always I commend them to you!
A high pressure system over the northern Tasman Sea, that is directing generally northerly winds along the New South Wales coast, is expected to weaken during Saturday. Meanwhile, a gusty southerly change is expected on the southern and central parts of the coast today before reaching the north coast early Saturday. The next change is set to arrive next Monday or Tuesday.
