Very little energy in the ocean this morning – not just in Sydney, but along the entire coast of NSW. However, the Bureau tells to expect the wind to pick up as the day goes along and as it does so, for the swell to start gradually coming up. From the look of the swell models, I’d say it’s not very likely you’ll be getting in the water today.
By tomorrow the situation should be more interesting. It’s not shaping to be big or anything, but prospects seem reasonable for the odd chest high sets at south magnets by around midday.
Swell energy should stick around into Monday and maybe dial back a touch into the knee to waist plus range across much of the coming week.
Have a good one!
A front is forecast to brush the south coast during Saturday reinforcing a south to southwesterly airstream along the New South Wales coast. Behind this, a strong high is expected to drift slowly across from the west, and looks set to become the dominant feature in the region through the coming week.
Forecast for Saturday until midnight
