Misty Saturday morning

Posted by: on October 24th, 2020

Hello Friends,

Gloomy drizzly skies and 10-15 kts of NNE wind from daybreak on Saturday morning. As the pictures show, there are little NE wind swell waves at the better exposures, but quality isn’t great. Out at sea it was 1.4 metres at 6-7 seconds from the NE, so not a lot of energy in the mix. Tide’s low at 0910 and it’ll be back to high at 1545. The Bureau says we can expect a humid high of 26 later with 5-15mm of showers.
Better get used to the showery weather, because the Bureau says we’re going to have it for the next week – plus it’s going to be southerly the whole time.
Surf will build under the southerly, so, water quality willing, there may be the odd wave option in the protected corners, but from here it does not look as though the quality will be terribly spectacular.
We’ll all be spending more time inside this week, so keep the masks handy – we don’t want to see anything like what folk are enduring in the northern hemisphere right now.
Go well!
