An easy call this morning. It’s onshore and micro. Too small to surf at Dee Why.
Wind was coming from the ENE at 8-10 kts and out at sea the wind bump was covering a 1.7 m 10 second dead south swell, so maybe there might be something in a north corner. The wind is expected to accelerate as the day gets going. There’s a 70% chance of a shower or two later, which of course means the morning sunshine will give way to grey skies. And then we’re in for a couple days of showery weather with northerly winds.
Have a good one!
By Order of the Federal Government, our beaches are open for exercise only – surfing, swimming, running and walking. Beaches will be closed due to unsafe conditions and or mass gatherings. All pools are closed at this time.
Please see some commonly asked questions about the beach closures.
If people are sunbaking or gathering on the beach, they will be asked to move along by our lifeguards, rangers or the police.
Due to the risk of Coronavirus and acting on direction of NSW and Federal Governments, Council has closed many public areas. View the latest updates on the evolving situation with Coronavirus (COVID-19).
In addition, it is against the law to gather with more than two people in public, except:
- for members of the same household
- where the gathering is essential for work or education
- If you go out, stay 1.5 metres away from other people at all times.
The rules are also now enforceable and Police are issuing fines of $1000 for individuals and $5000 for companies. These are difficult circumstances and we appreciate your patience and understanding.
A weak trough off the northern coast is expected to decay today, as a high pressure system over the Tasman Sea extends a ridge into New South Wales. A strong cold front, currently south of the Bight, will reach the state’s west later Wednesday then cross the coast on Thursday, bringing a vigorous westerly change. Gusty conditions are forecast to remain in many coastal areas through to the weekend as a deep low develops near Tasmania.
