Going to 33C today and, as so often happens, when it’s hot, it’s micro. The standout spots are seeing the odd knee to thigh high set, but everywhere else is choppy and flat. Wind was 11-15 kts from the NE. Tide’s coming into a swampy 2 metre high at 0940 and out at sea the buoys are detecting a metre of 5-7 seconds of ENE wind swell. Water is clean and currently on 20C according to Beachwatch.
The models are showing a gradual increase in wave heights as the day goes along, but the wind’s set to go around to the SE by around midday. Tomorrow’s set to be windy with SW early going SE later… so maybe high tide spots will be a possibility for the early. Outlook for the remainder of the week is not currently looking terribly hopeful with not much more than a metre of windswell to work with.
Take care, go well and have fun with your Monday.
Northerly winds are increasing as a high pressure system continues to build over the Tasman Sea and a trough and cold front approach from the west. This front and associated trough are forecast to bring a strong southerly change to southern parts of the coast on Monday and then continue north to Queensland on Tuesday. Following this, a new high will extend a ridge along the New South Wales coast.
Forecast for Monday until midnight
