Sunny, breezy and tiny

Posted by: on September 6th, 2020

Hello Friends,

No sign of a surfable wave at Dee Why this morning. Wind is out of the ESE at 7-10 kts as of 0930. It should pick up a little more and get a bit more east as well, so surface conditions will be ordinary all day. Out at sea the buoy is seeing 1.3 metres of 8-second energy from 166°. Water’s on 17C. We’re going to a high of 20C today with partly cloudy skies and the slight chance of a sprinkle.

The models aren’t offering much hope of a change until around midweek when the more hopeful projections see a south pulse arriving Wednesday with a subsequent rise in swell. It then stays southerly for a couple of days, but there should be waves of some sort around. I’m not expecting much in the way of good quality surf though because the predicted period range is sub-10 seconds, and wind will be out of the southerly quarters.

Have a good Sunday and pack your mask for those times when you can’t maintain distance.

Dee Why Sunday morning

Weather Situation

A low pressure trough is lingering in the far northeast corner of the state while a high pressure system in the west is drifting across the state, resulting in a gradual shift in coastal winds from southerly to northerly in most areas. The high is expected to be over the Tasman Sea by Monday as the next cold front approaches from the west. This front is forecast to bring a southerly change during Wednesday.
