Waves on Wednesday

Posted by: on February 17th, 2021

Hello Friends,

A steady 8-13 kt ESE wind was delivering lumpy, bumpy surface conditions from early. Swell at sea was 2 metres at 8 seconds from 103°, which is in line with the predictions for swell. Set wave faces were in the head to overhead range on the bigger ones. Next tide is a high at 1245. We’re headed to a high of 26C.

Weather Situation
A broad trough of low pressure lies off the northern New South Wales coast while a high sits to the east of Tasmania. This pattern is producing fresh southeasterly winds along much of the coast. East to southeasterly winds will tend east to northeasterly later in the week as the high slowly drifts east across the southern Tasman Sea.
