Going to a high of 30 today. It’s sunny this morning, but there’s a 60% chance of showers later. There is some bump about thanks to 1.3 metres of 8-9 second NE wind swell. Best exposures should be seeing waist high sets with the odd chest plus bomb. Tides heading into a fairly swampy 1.75m high at 1105. Wind before 0730 was out of the north at around 10kts. That should build soon because the forecast says it’ll be 15-20 kts later. Water’s still on 18C.
A high pressure system lies over the Tasman Sea while a cold front is crossing the southern and western parts of the state today, bringing a brief southwesterly change to southern parts of the coast late this evening and continue to northern parts on Tuesday.
