Scrappy but there are waves

Posted on December 31st, 2019 in Dee Why.

Hello Friends,

9-12 kts of NNE wind at 0740 with smoke haze reducing visibility to about 5 kms along the beaches. Sets at the Dee Why end of the beach were around the waist high mark, close together and looking pretty soft. Out at sea as of 0500 the MHL buoy was seeing 2.4 m of 8 seconds from the north and SSE. Tide was low at 0600 and is currently coming into the high at 1230.

As I write this, the radio’s on with the latest fire reports from Vicco and the far south coast. Scary stuff on a day when up here in Sydney we’re going to a high of 34C ahead of a late gusty cool change and the smoke haze will be making air quality poor all day.

2019 is going out on a rather somber note. Naturally we’re all hoping for a New Year with fewer fires and a break in the drought. But however it plays out, we can help each other – while demanding much more science-based policy from political leadership.

See you tomorrow one and all.

Smoke haze and dribble waves

Posted on December 30th, 2019 in Dee Why.

Hello Friends,

Smoke was pretty bad when I grabbed the shots around 0730. I’d say we were down to 4-5km visibility. According to dpie air quality monitoring, we’re probably looking at fair PM10 right now – but we don’t know for sure as there are no monitors on the Northern Beaches. Surfwise it looks remarkably similar to yesterday. There were a couple of people in the water at the point where set waves might occasionally get into the waist high range for a few moments. But the 6-9 kt NNE wind was making the 2m, 7sec E-ESE wind bump look pretty messy and gutless. Not a quality morning out there sadly.

Wind’s going to ramp up into the 20-30 kt range from the N-NE this afternoon, so the bumps will get bigger, but if yesterday afternoon is any guide, it’ll still be really weak and slow – along with being really windy.

We’re going to a high of 28 along the beaches today and then looking at 33C tomorrow ahead of a late southerly change for NYE. Right now New Year’s Day is shaping to be strongly southerly with a potentially useful east swell in the 1.5m, 10-second range… south corners ahoy.

Stay safe and best wishes to our firefighters facing the hellish conditions out west.

 

 

Like yesterday only smokier

Weather Situation
A slow-moving high pressure system over the Tasman Sea is expected to remain the dominant feature in the region during the next couple of days. This will result in northeasterly winds along the New South Wales coast until a strong southerly change moves though southern and central parts on Tuesday, which will weaken on the Mid North Coast during Wednesday.

Grey skies, smoke haze, hot later tiny waves

Posted on December 29th, 2019 in Dee Why.

Hello Friends,

Up early for a Sunday, so grabbed the pics at 0600 or so. Temperature was a pleasant 22C, but it’ll go up 9 degrees today. Skies were gloomy and the sun was a menacing red through the smoke haze from the fires. Surfwise, well the pictures tell the story – it’s bumpy and tiny basically. Tide was low at 0440 and is coming in to a 1.78m high at 1110. Wind was out of the north at 4-7 kts, but as the day heats up, it’ll accelerate into the 15-25 kt range from the N to NE. As it does, the Bureau tells us that we can expect the NE wind swell to build a little. Typical summer in that respect anyway.  The MHL buoy was showing 2m at 8 seconds from the north around to east. Water’s on 21C.

The hot weather will last through Tuesday and so will the NE wind. New Year’s Day could see cloudy skies and temps in the low 20’s as the wind regime flips to southerly for the remainder of the work week.

The ECM forecast model shows sub 8-second periods and swell heights in the 1.5 m range all week, but the Wavewatch 3 modelling predicts closer to 2 metres at 9 seconds Tues-Weds, then a bit smaller but into the 11-12 second range for the back half of the week. For what it’s worth, Wavewatch’s prediction for right now is closer to the MHL data than ECM’s (shorter period and smaller) numbers.

Go well with your Sunday everyone!

Barely there on Saturday morning

Posted on December 28th, 2019 in At large.

Hello Friends,

As of 0630 the surface conditions were bumpy and lightly textured along the beaches. There was a weak, close-together looking knee to maybe waist high little wind swell wafting in from E-SE. You could tell it was pretty uninteresting because there were only a handful of people in the water on a nice Saturday morning. The MHL buoy’s 0400 data showed 1.8 metres at 6 seconds from the ESE out at sea. Tide was coming in to the 1.8 m high at 1030. Wind was very light from the NNE under clear skies with good visibility.

The Bureau has a strong wind warning for N-NE wind at 20-25 kts this afternoon. So there might be a little more activity at selected spots on the other side of the low tide at 1715. But between now and then conditions are going to be less than enticing most places.

We’re heading to a high of 29C along the beaches and you can expect ocean temps to be in the 21C range.

The strong wind later today could possibly deliver slightly bigger wind swell bumps for tomorrow morning, but I’m not hopeful of a dramatic improvement over the low intensity stuff we’re seeing now.

It might improve a bit mid-week, so here’s hoping

Weather Situation
A near-stationary high pressure system over the Tasman Sea is expected to remain the dominant feature in the region during the next few days. This will result in east to northeasterly winds along the New South Wales coast, briefly interrupted in the south by a weak southerly change on Sunday. A stronger southerly change is forecast to move though southern and central parts of the coast on Tuesday.

Not happening at Dee Why this morning

Posted on December 27th, 2019 in Dee Why.

Hello Friends,

A steady 8-12 kt NNE breeze  at 0730 and a metre of 5-second SE wind bump were adding up to not much in the way of surf at Dee Why this morning. The weak and tiny conditions weren’t being helped by the tide filling into a 1.88 m high 0950. It’s gonna be tough finding anything above knee high. And what there is will be very gutless. Maybe try around at Curly if you’re really, really keen. Water seems to be warming up a touch, with Beachwatch reporting 22C yesterday, so there is that…

The Goat has rolled out a fresh forecast for your consideration. And as always, I commend his wisdom to you.

Go well with your Friday!

The Goat’s Surf Forecast

Surf forecast issued Thursday 26 December 2019: Seven day outlook for Sydney:

The good news for this week is>>>Waves – of varying sorts – all week.  Don’t get too excited… It will be mainly NE windswell but there should be enough of it from time to time at the right places to catch a wave… So, bigger at the Southern ends of beaches, where it’ll be windier too … You can’t have everything.

Friday: 1-1+ metres East North East and starting to come up later

Saturday: in the 1-2 metre range North East

Sunday: up a bit more in the 1-2 metre range through the day North East

Monday: in the 1-2 metre range North East

Tuesday: 1-2 metre range East North East

Wednesday: 1-2 metre range Eastish

Thursday: Ditto

Boxing day tinyness

Posted on December 26th, 2019 in Dee Why.

Hello Friends,
Glassy with just a breath of NNE breeze when I grabbed the snaps around 0700. Tide was coming into the 1.89m high at 0910 and skies were more sunny than not. Lots of folks in the water at both Curly and Dee Why beaches, but waves were pretty marginal. I’d call it a fat and gutless ankle to knee with the odd waist high bomb. Take the floatiest option in your surf arsenal. We should see a high of 25C along the beaches today.

Outlook is for conditions to bumble along at more or less this current lack of intensity through the weekend. Right now there is at least a hope of a little NE pulse early next week. Right now the indications are that it will be pretty local (short period) but potentially into the waist to shoulder range at standouts in the usual spots.

Have a great Boxing Day everyone!

Come and play another day at Dee Why point

Happy Christmas waves

Posted on December 25th, 2019 in Dee Why.

Hello Friends,

It doesn’t always work out this way for all the kiddies with brand new boards, but if you don’t mind lumpy, bumpy and scrappy conditions, there are a few waves to be had. Dee Why was showing sets into the shoulder plus range along the beach while it looked to be a little bit smaller and less consistent for the crew at the point. Given the size and bumpiness, it’s not really suitable for beginners at most places. Quality is at the low end of the scale but at least there’s energy in the mix.
As of 0800 the wind was ENE at 4-7 kts and tide was just about to hit a 1.86m high (It’s back to low at 1500). Skies were partly cloudy with minimal smoke haze. We’re heading to a high of 26C this afternoon, buy which time the wind should be a summer standard 15-20 kts from the NE. So, up into the north corners per usual. Ocean temp is on 21C. The MHL buoy shows the main energy was coming at us from the SSE. As of 0500 the Sydney buoy was registering 1.8 metres of 14 second energy from 160-162°.
The models show the longer period component fading out over the next 24 hours, so we can expect the solid sets to drop out of the mix as we return to mainly short period and floppy wind bump in the waist high range through the weekend.
Have a great Christmas day and may there be much joy and laughter for you and yours.

Weather Situation
A high pressure system is moving slowly across the southern Tasman Sea, extending a ridge northwards and directing northeasterly winds along New South Wales waters. Little change is expected to this pattern for the remainder of the week, apart from a weak southerly change expected over southern waters on Boxing Day.

Waves for Tuesday morning

Posted on December 24th, 2019 in Dee Why.

Hello Friends,

Swell picked up yesterday and toward evening when I checked it, there were head high plus sets at the best exposures. This morning looks to be less consistent but as of 0500, the 1.6 m SSE swell was packing some 16-17 second component, so although I didn’t catch any when I took the pictures, I’d expect the odd shoulder plus. Surface conditions were relatively smooth but quite lumpy and bumpy thanks to the overnight NE wind. It was 4-5 kts ENE at 0820, but as the forecast below indicates, it’ll pick up before long and surf options will contract to the north ends.

Tide was a 1.8 m high at 0735 and is now dropping to the low at 1415. The day will warm up to a high of 26 along the coast and we can expect it to be partly cloudy with a 50% chance of light percipitation. Water quality should be fine and temp is now around the 21C mark.

The lumpy bumpy conditions look like sticking around for Christmas day and on into the week, although the juicier long period stuff will likely fade out over the next 24 hours, leaving us with soft, messy conditions.

Have a fun Christmas eve, and expect a late report tomorrow!

Little grey Monday waves

Posted on December 23rd, 2019 in Dee Why.

Hello Friends,

Glassy knee to maybe stomach high little waves coming into the point this morning. It was a touch bigger looking along the beach, but it also seemed to be shutting down. Wind at North Head as of 0900 was SSW 5-6 kt. The MHL data from 0600 showed a mix of tiny, long period stuff from 30° and a broader area of mainly S-SSE (148° to 164°) stuff at an average period of 7 seconds. There seems to be some longer period stuff in that mix too, so that probably accounts for the soft but surfable stuff at the point, even though the buoy is showing average swell height of 1.6m. Should be bigger and more energetic at optimal exposures (eg Curly).

Wind is supposed to go around to the onshore quarters soon. Tide is currently dropping from the 1.7m high at 0645 to a lowish 0.4 m at 1315.

Weather should remain mostly cloudy as it warms to 25 with a 30% chance of a sprinkle. Water is 21C.

It looks as though this uptick in surf energy could stick around to Christmas Day…

Go well!
