Monday started out overcast with a light NW breeze. We’re going to a high of 29C and there will likely be a shower or two this afternoon. As of 0800 the wind swell out at sea was a paltry 0.8 of a metre at 7 seconds from the SE. Beachwatch says water temp is on 20C and the first tide of the daylight hours is a 0.76m low at 0945.
As you can see from the snaps, Manly was bumping along at the bottom of the surfable range. It was the same at Curly and Dee Why. If you’re super keen, yeah maybe, but I for one can wait for the next pulse – which could be as soon as tomorrow…
A high pressure system lies over the Tasman sea. A front will move northwards up the coast during Monday, causing winds to freshen and shift southerly. Southerly winds will persist Tuesday before tending southeast to northeasterly Wednesday as another high builds over the Tasman Sea.
