Another gorgeous morning in Sydney without a hint of a wave. The MHL buoy was seeing 0.9 metres of 10-second stuff from the south, but it was going right by Dee Why. Not that it matters, but tide was high at 0630 and will back to low at 1230. Water is sitting on 19C according to Beachwatch – who also reports water quality as good up and down the peninsula.
Outlook you ask? It’s Friday, so that means there’s a gleaming new surf forecast from the Goat awaiting your consideration.
Have yourself a great Friday everyone!
North to northwesterly winds will freshen ahead of a vigorous south to southwesterly change that will move along the southern and central parts of the coast this afternoon and evening, and northern parts early on Saturday morning. After this, winds will remain predominantly south to southwesterly as the front moves east over the Tasman Sea and a high pressure system south of the Bight extends a ridge into Queensland. Early in the new week, this high pressure system is forecast to move east to the Tasman Sea as another cold front approaches southeastern Australia.
Forecast for Friday until midnight
