Southerly and still micro

Posted by: on November 24th, 2020

Hello Friends,

The southerly rattled into town overnight and this morning sees 10-20 kts of straight south wind under more cloudy than not skies. Swell at sea is up to 2.5 metres, but it’s only 6-7 seconds apart and it’s dead south. Weather should stay partly cloudy and get to a mild 23C along the coast. There’s a 20% chance of a shower this morning too. Beachwatch reports that pollution is unlikely from Palm Beach to Cronulla and water is 20C. First tide of the daylight hours is the 0.74 m low at 1055.
Surf outlook is for a little uptick from tomorrow through Friday, and then as it heats up this weekend, the models say the waves will fade away to micro again. So, taking the most optimistic predictions… there could be waist to maybe even the odd chest high wave face at magnets. It looks as though the swell direction should gradually migrate from the current dead south to close to east by Friday.
Go well with your Tuesday everybody!

Weather Situation
Southerly flow following the tail end of a cold front over northern coastal waters will continue to the Queensland border this morning. Following this, a high pressure system will drift across southeast Australia, reaching the Tasman Sea on Wednesday, bringing a return to northerly winds in most coastal areas. A weak southerly change looks set to briefly affect the southern half of the coast later Thursday.
