The scent of burning off in the air this morning and although it’s bright and sunny, it’s also definitely hazy too. Yesterday’s little south pulse faded away overnight and we’re now back to near flat conditions. I couldn’t see anyone in the water at Dee Why from the RealSurf crows nest when I snapped this morning’s pictures. Looking at some of the cams, it seems that the 1.1 metre 12 second SSE swell is still producing the odd knee to waist high bump at the optimal exposures.
Both the ECM and Wavewatch models are predicting that the smallness will get smaller tomorrow but then we could see a little uptick from the south on Tuesday. After that they both predict a return to flat or near flat for the rest of the week… hope they’re wrong!
Go well with you Sunday and keep that mask handy for when you need to go into enclosed public spaces.
A high pressure system over the western Tasman Sea will move east ahead of an approaching cold front. This cold front looks set to bring a strong southerly change to the southern half of the New South Wales coast late tonight and early Monday, before it eases as it extends along the northern coast later on Monday. Northerly winds are forecast to increase from Tuesday as another cold front approaches from the west.
