Barely there

Posted by: on January 5th, 2021

Hello Friends,

A glassy start to Tuesday and definitely a few waves about at magnet spots. Swell looked to be in the knee to maybe waist high range at Dee Why away from the south end, but better aligned stretches could be another 0.3-0.5 m bigger on the best sets. Out at sea the buoys were recording 1.3 metres of 8-9 sec straight east wind swell. First tide of the daylight hours was a 0.61 low at 0720. The 1.65 m high peaks at 1335. Wind was light offshore before 0700 and is predicted to come around to the S-SW 10-15kts. It should be a partly cloudy day with a high of 27 and the chance of a thunderstorm in the afternoon. Water quality is generally good, but lagoon entrances could be problematic. Temp is 21C.
We’re set to go into a southerly regime from tomorrow before dawn and, while the waves might get a bit bigger (and closer together), surface conditions are shaping to be pretty ordinary until around Saturday.
Go well, and mask up!

Weather Situation
A trough of low pressure extends from northern inland New South Wales to the southern coast, and is directing north to northeasterly winds over most of the New South Wales coast. This trough may deepen into a low pressure circulation off the southern coast, which is expected to bring a southerly wind change to southern waters this afternoon and continue north on Tuesday. This system is forecast to move offshore mid-week with south to southeasterly winds persisting, as a new high to the south of the Bight extends a ridge along the coast.
