Perfect weather, light wind early, sunny skies, but it’s only knee to maybe very occasionally waist high where the surf’s concerned. We’re heading to a high of 28C along the beaches and Beachwatch reports the water is on 21C . Swell at sea this morning was around 0.8 metres from the SE at 11 seconds.
Outlook remains for the coming week to be very small to near flat, although there is at least a hope for a little up tick on the weekend – but with wind on it.
Summer time is here.
So, take care, maintain your distance and wear your mask where you’re supposed to and have a great Monday.
A high pressure system over the Tasman Sea extends a ridge along the New South Wales coast. As this high slowly drifts east over the next few days, winds will gradually turn northeasterly and increase in most coastal areas. A trough may bring a brief southerly change to the southern coast on Tuesday, with a more substantial change likely during the second half of the week.
