Sunday scrappyness at Dee Why

Posted by: on December 1st, 2019

Hello Friends,

Less than amazing late morning at Dee Why this Sunday. There were a few gutless bumps, but you had to work them to get any forward motion. Lulls were long too and by the time I grabbed the snaps around 1040, the high tide was less than two hours away. So, on top of the weak swell, it was also getting fatter. Yes, you could go for a paddle, and there’s nothing wrong with that, but finding any juice, well that wasn’t really on the menu.

The wind was dribbly side shore, but the Bureau tells us it should swing NE during the afternoon – and the swell will weaken.

Looks as though the weak and tiny conditions will be southerly tomorrow but late Wednesday and overnight into Thursday, the Wavewatch model is showing a straight south pulse that might get into the magnets. The ECM model doesn’t agree and it predicts tiny dribble through the week.

I’m planning to head down to Manly after lunch to see if I can make myself useful on the Surfrider Ocean Care Day stall. Drop on by if you’re around!

Weather Situation
A weakening trough lies over the New South Wales north coast today, with winds shifting northerly in most coastal areas. A vigorous cold front will reach the southern coast tonight, continuing through remaining areas on Monday, bringing a gusty west to southwesterly change. Following this, a weak ridge looks set to develop over the region on Tuesday, and should remain dominant through much of the coming week.
