Sunny, bumpy and tiny

Posted by: on November 3rd, 2019

Hello Friends,
It’s starting out sunny this morning along the beaches, but the forecast tells us there’s a 90% chance of precipitation by this afternoon. Surf situation at Dee Why is underwhelming, to say the least. As the pictures show, there really isn’t much in the way of a distinct line. Size looks to be in the knee high range. As of 0830, wind was 7-8 kts from the NNE, but there’s a strong wind warning for it to swing N-NW 15-25 kts. Out at sea as of 0600 the bump was 2 metres and 8 seconds apart. It was coming mainly from the SE, but there’s a similar amount coming from the NE too.
Tide was low at 0710 and will be back to high at 1440. Water has dropped back to 18C and we’re headed for a high of 27 on the coast.
Outlook is for the short period metre-ish wind bump from the E-NE most of the time. Wind will swing back and forth from the SSE to NNE across the coming week. So, a kind of typical spring surf week ahead.
Have a great Sunday!

Weather Situation
A high pressure system over the Tasman Sea is directing north to northeasterly winds along the New South Wales coast while a trough and cold front slowly move across the state. This system is forecast to bring a southerly change to the South Coast today, and then continue northwards to reach central parts on Monday morning before weakening and stalling as it approaches the far north coast by the end of Monday.
