Nice day to be missing it

Posted by: on December 25th, 2020

Hello Friends,

Enjoying Christmas morning, but wondering about the beach? Don’t. You’re missing only turgid waist high onshore junk. Along with heavy overcast, there’s also 12-17 kts of SSE wind. So make the most of the social opportunities while being COVID-19 safe.

Wretchedly awful surf conditions


Weather Situation

A high pressure system south of the continent is pushing a southerly change northwards along the New South Wales coast. This trough will stall and decay on the northern New South Wales coast during Friday, as the high drifts slowly east. By Saturday the high is expected to be over the Tasman Sea, bringing a return to northerly winds in most coastal areas through the weekend. A cold front is forecast to skim across the state’s south Sunday, with an associated trough bringing a southerly change to southern and central parts of the coast on Monday.
