Another gorgeous morning along the beaches, but there’s no swell to speak of at Dee Why and 10-20 kts of SSW wind is keeping things cool. Out at sea there was a 4-5 sec period 1.5 metre SE wind chop.
Looking at the ECM and Wavewatch models for this morning, it appears we’re in for more of the same – more or less – into the weekend. Both sets of predictions are calling for a little pulse of straight south late Saturday through Sunday. At best they’re projecting around 2 metres at 8-10 seconds. So, nothing amazing, but it should be surfable at south magnets – if it happens.
Have a great day everybody!
A vigorous southerly change associated with a cold front is extending north today, expected to reach the Queensland border by this afternoon. This front will be replaced by a high pressure ridge on Wednesday bringing a return to northerly winds over the waters until the weekend.
