The beach was just barely visible from RealSurf HQ thanks to another day of smoke from the fires devouring vast areas of the bush around NSW. Waves look very small and the MHL buoy shows why: it’s around 2 metres from the north out at sea but average period is only 7 seconds. I’d call it ankle to knee with the odd plus where Dee Why’s concerned.
Tide is currently dropping to low at 1115.
Outlook for tomorrow and beyond we now know thanks to the all-seeing, all-knowing, very stable Goat who graced us with a forecast overnight.
Have a good Friday everyone!
With a severe amount of processing, you can sort of make out that there are waves.
A high pressure system lies over the northern Tasman Sea will direct increasing north to northeasterly winds along the coast, as a cold front approaches from the southwest. This front will bring a vigorous southerly change to central parts of the coast, reaching the lower Mid North Coast by Friday afternoon, when it is expected to stall and weaken.
