Pretty little mal waves

Posted by: on October 30th, 2020

Hello Friends,

Sunny skies and light offshores for the early risers. Swell at sea had dropped back to 1.2 metres at 10 seconds from 133° as of 0630. Quite a bit smaller than this time yesterday. Plus the tide was coming into the 1.57 m high at 0825 (it’s back to low at 1435).

Grabbed a couple snaps from Manly where it was busy thanks to the small and soft but otherwise beautiful conditions.

Weather Situation

A low pressure system is deepening over NSW in response to an active upper trough which will turn winds east to northeasterly during today. The low will slowly move east to reach the Tasman Sea on Saturday and move away to the east on Sunday allowing freshening southerly flow to extend along the NSW coast. A high pressure system over the southern Tasman Sea will extend a ridge over NSW on Monday.

Forecast for Friday until midnight

Winds
Southwesterly 10 to 15 knots becoming east to southeasterly 10 to 15 knots in the afternoon and increasing offshore to east to northeasterly 15 to 20 knots at night.
Seas
Around 1 metre.
1st Swell
Southeasterly 1 to 1.5 metres.
2nd Swell
Easterly around 1 metre.
