Grey, onshore, tiny, sorry

Posted by: on December 12th, 2019

Hello Friends,

Wind was coming from the south at 7-10 kts before 0700 and as of 0400, the MHL buoy was showing 1.5 metres of 7-8 second wind bump from 162°. Tide was coming into a 1.8 m high at 0900. Skies were overcast and Dee Why wasn’t seeing obvious smoke haze. We’re going to to a high of 23 and there’s a 20% chance of a light shower. Beachwatch reports 20C water.

But surf? Well, the pictures tell the sad story. Not today folks.

When will it improve again, well, it’s Thursday and that means we can look forward to the Goat’s wise counsel on these matters later today. It looks pretty quiet to me, but check back this afternoon to see what the Wise One says…

In the meantime, go well with your Thursday.

The point slumbers on a grey and onshore morning
