The Goat’s Surf Forecast

Surf forecast issued Thursday 22 October 2020: Seven day outlook for Sydney:

Lovely weather right now.

Waves have been smallish and wind affected this week, but I did see some people taking advantage of the right tides occasionally.

The outlook for the weekend and week ahead is for some rain and showers according to BoM, which might dampen the enthusiasm of some, and there will be wind as well. But if you’re keen, you’re going to get wet anyway…

Friday: around 1 metre or less North East

Saturday: somewhere in the 1-2 metre range at Southern wind blown ends of beaches, smaller in NE sheltered corners

Sunday: coming up with Southerly wind say around 2 – 2+ metres at places that get dead South swell

Monday: similar but more South East and still with Southerly wind to mess it up

Tuesday: in the 1-2 metre range East South East

Wednesday: dittoish

Thursday: coming up say 2 metres East South East

Stay well and look out for each other.
