Waves about

Posted by: on February 4th, 2021

Hello Friends,

A sunny 29C day coming up for the beaches. And there were lightly choppy waist high waves at the point and along the beach at Dee Why. Low tide was at 0810 and will be back to high at 1415. Swell at sea was 1.5 metres from the SE at 10-11 seconds. Water is about 23C.
Outlook is for the wave energy to fade this morning and be back to marginal by lunchtime.

Weather Situation
A low pressure system off the southern coast of New South Wales will move further south and weaken further, as a high over the southern Tasman Sea becomes the dominant feature in the region. This will bring a gradual return to northerly winds in most coastal areas during the next day or two, before another trough and southerly change on Sunday.
