Nothing doing on the surf front at Dee Why this morning

Posted by: on November 20th, 2020

Hello Friends,
Another day for your no-surf exercise alternatives at Dee Why. We’re heading to a high of 29C with a sunny morning and the chance of a thunderstorm this afternoon. The wind should come up into the 15-20 kt range from the N to NE later. Out at sea the buoys are detecting 1.3 metres of 7 second NE wind bump. Ocean temp is on 20C and water is clean up and down Sydney’s coastline.
While there’s nothing going on at Dee Why, better NE exposures should see lumpy, weak stuff in the knee to waist high range.
If you’re wondering about the weekend prospects, well, as always the unsinkable Goat has rolled out his usual Thursday evening predictions for the coming surf week.
Go well one and all and keep the mask handy for indoor public spaces. As the latest South Australian cluster shows, the virus can spread quickly before it’s detected.

A trough will bring a southerly change to southern parts of the coast during the afternoon and evening today, and then continue north to the Mid North Coast on Saturday, where it will stall and weaken. Northerly winds will then increase as the high pressure system again becomes the dominant feature over the Tasman Sea.
