A mild 10 kt westerly at 0700 when I grabbed the snaps. Tide was coming in to the 1.7 m high just before noon and out at sea the swell was around the 1 metre mark at 9 seconds from the east. There looked to be a few knee to maybe waist-and-a-bit plusses at Dee Why. Beachwatch reports water is on 18C and the Bureau says we’re heading to a high of 27 on what should be a mostly sunny day.
Should be a wave around the place if you’re keen. The swell direction means most beaches should be showing something.
From the look of the models, we’re likely to see a decrease to near flatness tomorrow and small to near flat Thursday into late Saturday. But there is some hope of a pulse for south magnets from Sunday morning on into next week…
Have a great day and take the mask for those occasions when you can’t maintain distance. Don’t give the virus a chance.
