14 seconds, 1.7 metres, 166° – adding up to glassy waist to chest high fun ones for Dee Why surfers. People looked to be maintaining distance (easy when surfing), which is a good thing. Wind was light and tide was just past the 0810 high so conditions were coming together nicely.
Going to a high of 28C today along the coast and wind should be southerly by this afternoon. Beachwatch says water’s 22C and good for swimming at all of Sydney’s beaches.
Have a good one and stay away from crowds, wash your hands, cough/sneeze into the crook of your arm, don’t touch your face and always maintain at least 1.5m distance from others.
A cold front clipping the far southeast of New South Wales will bring another surge of southerly winds to southern and central parts of the coast today, extending north on Monday. Then a ridge of high pressure is forecast to extend along the coast through the first half of the new week, with cold fronts passing well to the south.
