A light faintly cool offshore under sunny skies as Sunday got started along the beaches. Alas, there was only the barest trickle of a line coming into the Dee Why. Out at sea the buoys were seeing less than a metre of 6-second SSE wind bump. You could go for a swim or a paddle, but finding anything above the knee high mark is going to be a big ask.
From the look of the swell models, tomorrow’s going to be more of the same. Tuesday could see some scrappy south wind swell peaking into the chest plus range. It might clean up overnight into Wednesday morning, but it also looks as though the swell will also fade back into the knee to waist high range. Still, that’d be better than the current flatness.
Have yourself a top old Sunday everyone!
A high pressure system over the northern reaches of the Tasman sea will extend northerly winds across New South Wale’s coastal waters today. A front will move northwards up the coast during Monday, causing winds to freshen and shift southerly.
