Only tiny wind bumped wind bump on offer this morning. Lower your expectations if you’re getting in no matter what. Still, it is another absolutely beautiful day out there!
We’re heading to a high of 24 along the coast today with onshores from the SE-NE in the morning and a NE’r this afternoon. First tide of the daylight hours is the low at 1050. The 1.58m high arrives at 1720. As of 0730, the swell out at sea was a touch over a metre from the SE at 9 seconds. Water has come up a tick to 19C according to Beachwatch.
Surf outlook for the next 3-4 days is currently pretty dire. Maybe not totally flat, but mostly below waist high at the better spots is the outlook until Thr-Fri.
Have a good one, and keep the mask handy!
A trough, which brought a south to southeasterly change to southern and central waters overnight, is weakening as a high pressure system strengthens over the Tasman Sea today. On Tuesday a trough is forecast to bring a southerly change to the southern coast and then weaken as it moves north, to reach central parts on Wednesday. After this, northerly winds are expected to increase as the high again becomes the dominant feature in the region.
