Yep it’s still messy

Posted by: on February 3rd, 2021

Hello Friends,
Bit of sunshine around this morning and some junky wind bump too. Wind was SW 4-10 kts. Swell at sea was 2.3 metres at 9 seconds from the south. Wind is set to come around to the the south and get into the 15-20 kt range before slackening and swinging to the E-NE late in the day. Tomorrow morning might be reasonable in protected north corners as the swell is due to stick around and the wind goes into a summer NE pattern (ie light early, blowing out later).
Ocean is on 23C, water quality is generally good (apart from the lagoon entrances) and today should see a high along the beaches of 25C. Low tide was at 0710 and the high will arrive at 1320.
Go well, stay safe and have fun with your Wednesday.
