Gale warning morning

Posted by: on October 26th, 2020

Hello Friends,

Stormy Manly

32-42 kts SSE under grey and lowering skies as Monday got started. Out at sea the 170° (S by SSE) swell was 4.8 to 7.6 metres at 7.5-11 seconds. Even so, it was too straight for Collaroy or the Bower. Not that you’d really want to be out in that maelstrom anyway. From the forecast, it looks as though things are going to stay crazy through Wednesday, although it’s just possible that tomorrow could see a few surf options open up as the wind goes more SW.

A good day to get on with other matters.

Have a good one and mask up!
