Very small south

Posted on November 19th, 2014 in Big Picture.

Hello Friends,

As of 0200 the MHL buoy was showing 1.3 metres of 9-second period south swell. As I wrote this at around 0500, wind was a steady 10 kts from the ESE and the next tide was the high at 0645. There should be some waist plus sets at magnet spots, but the wind will be an issue and the high tide won’t help either. Plus, the Bureau says we can expect the swell to fade during the day. Argh.

It looks like very tiny conditions for the next few days. Tomorrow’s shaping to be really little but Friday could maybe see a small uptick into the waist plus range as the swell perks from the NE and the morning sees stiffish offshores.

Another quiet day on the surf front in southern Cali as we wait for the arrival of swell tomorrow. Went for a stroll along a beach west of Santa Barbara yesterday afternoon. It’s a spot-rich but swell-poor stretch of coast that is flat most of the time, but with the right swell direction (as is forecast for tomorrow…) it can light up very nicely indeed.

Weather Situation

A high pressure system centred near Victorian coast extends a ridge into New South Wales resulting in a fairly weak pressure pattern. A weak trough will decay in the north today as the high shifts east to the Tasman Sea and becomes dominant. This is forecast to bring a return to generally northerly winds during the second half of the week, increasing Thursday and Friday as the next trough approaches from the west.

Dull start to Tuesday in Sydney

Posted on November 18th, 2014 in Big Picture.

Hello Friends,

Light onshores from early and not a great deal going on thanks to the 11-sec 1.4 metre SSE swell and early morning high tide. Overcast skies and light easterly breeze aren’t contributing much to this morning’s prospects. Wind is due to stay out of the easterly quarters today.

I reckon you’ll be doing really well to score the odd waist high set at a magnet spot today. The various swell models are pretty much all pointing at a week (or more) of small to very small conditions for Sydney. Hope the modeller calling for chest plus tomorrow turns out to be right.

Here’s a screengrab from North Bondi RSL‘s cam. Doesn’t look like the south swell getting in there is anything much…

In terms of size, the situation in California isn’t too much different. But there are sunny skies here so I’ll take a beach walk later and will maybe have a postcard to share out of that.

Weather Situation

A high pressure system over the Bight extends a ridge into New South Wales resulting in a fairly weak pressure pattern today. A weak trough will move along the southern and central coast during the day, decaying in the north early Wednesday as the high shifts east to the Tasman Sea and becomes dominant. This is forecast to bring a return to generally northerly winds during the second half of the week, increasing Thursday and Friday as the next trough approaches from the west.

Monday surf day both sides

Posted on November 17th, 2014 in Big Picture.

Hello Friends,

About 1.5 metres of 9-sec period SSE swell coming in for the early in Sydney. Well exposed spots should be in the waist to shoulder range on sets. Wind was west at 0630 and with luck will stay light all morning before going east this afternoon. Next tide is a low at 1120.

Tomorrow morning looks like being smaller but still surfable and then, with luck, it should be back up a bit for Wednesday morning’s sesh. Thereafter it looks kinda quiet to me, but with little semi-surfable bumps in the am through the weekend.

Look elsewhere for a wave this morning (WRL pic)

A touch smaller over on this side of the pond, but still some little waves around so I might take the mal and go find a few slides later. This morning’s postcards come, once again, from Mesa Lane where the swell was still offering the odd diversion for the half dozen in the water on a warm and mostly clear-skied Sunday morning.

Have a great Sunday one and all!

Weather Situation

A high pressure system over the Bight extends a ridge into New South Wales today in the wake of a cold front which affected the region during the weekend. This will result in a fairly weak pressure pattern today, with light to moderate winds expected in most coastal areas except the far south where a passing front will generate stronger winds. A weak trough will move along the southern and central coast during Tuesday, decaying in the north early Wednesday as the high shifts east to the Tasman Sea and becomes dominant. This is forecast to bring a return to generally northerly winds during the second half of the week, increasing Thursday and Friday as the next trough approaches from the west.

Forecast for Monday until midnight

Winds
South to southwesterly 10 to 15 knots becoming variable about 10 knots in the morning then becoming easterly 10 to 15 knots in the afternoon.

Here a bit better than there

Posted on November 16th, 2014 in Big Picture.

Hello Friends,

Running a bit late today. Looks like Sydney’s not doing much surfwise. Hardly any swell showing on the MHL buoy and stiff 20+ kt NW wind should mean marginal knee to waist at places that like the metre or so of 9-sec period SE swell.

Monday for the early looks like a bit more potential with swell due to bump up a touch.

Tue-Wed looking like mornings will be the best shot for something in the knee plus range.

Over here in Cali we’ve had a couple of days of small west swell. Water’s about 19 and wave faces were anywhere from chest to head high at standouts. I surfed around midday at Mesa Lane in Santa Barbara and had a few fun things. Water’s around 18 or so which is damn weird for this time of year. After I got out I took a few postcard shots for you…

Weather Situation

A slow-moving trough and associated southerly change lie near the Queensland border, while a low pressure centre is tracking east along the New South Wales/Victoria border. This low is expected to deepen as it reaches the south coast later this morning, generating strong to gale force southwesterly winds over southern and central coastal areas, before moving steadily away to the east tonight. Conditions should continue to ease during Monday as the next high pressure system drifts across from the west, becoming the dominant synoptic feature during the first half of the week.

Small Saturday in Sydney, swell perks in Cali

Posted on November 15th, 2014 in Big Picture.

Hello Friends,

Swell seems to have faded rather dramatically in Sydney. The MHL buoy was showing about a metre of east swell at 10 seconds as of 0300. Wind was light SW at daybreak as I wrote this but the Bureau says it’ll be southerly before long – and then it’ll go SE.  Tide’s low at 0910, so given the dropping swell and looming wind, I’d be getting to the beach for the early – and not expecting too much either. Stand out spots may be in the waist to chest range, but I reckon that’s being hopeful really.

Tomorrow is shaping to be smaller, but the wind could mean north corners may possibly have some grovel-worthy option or other.

There could be a trickle of surfable stuff on Monday as well, but right now the rest of the week is looking marginal at best according to the current modelling.

Today’s postcard from Cali was taken a few hours ago at Arroyo Burro beach in Santa Barbara (where I learned to surf). Swell has popped up as expected but weirdly, despite the glassy conditions and head high bomb sets, there was one guy in the water when I checked. My plan is to get in the water later, so with any luck I may come back with a pic or two to share tomorrow.

Have yourself a top day everyone!

Weather Situation

A slow-moving trough and associated southerly change lie on the northern New South Wales coast, while a weak high pressure ridge is developing over southern parts. A second trough, currently near Adelaide, is expected to move east tonight, with a deepening low centre developing as it reaches the south coast during Sunday. This should see winds intensifying in southern and central areas, before the low moves away to the east overnight. Following this, conditions should ease at the start of the new week as then next high pressure system drifts across from the west.

Looks interesting early

Posted on November 14th, 2014 in Big Picture.

Hello Friends,

Interesting combo swell this morning in Sydney. The MHL buoy is showing 2 metres at 12 seconds from the SE along with 1-1-5 metres of 6+ sec NE wind bump. Tide’s low around 0800 and the day promises to be abnormally warm (again). Wind’s north early and will pick up as the day goes along, so that’ll likely bump out the sth corners. I reckon waist to chest plus at bigger spots.

Tomorrow is supposed to be southerly and the south component is set to dial back while the short period NE bumps slightly. I bet it won’t be so red hot. Maybe knee to waist-ish at standout spots.

Still playing the waiting game in Santa Barbara but it’s beginning to look hopeful for at least something maybe late this arvo and definitely tomorrow. My fingers are crossed for waist to chest plus around here (further south and up north it’ll be into the head plus to 2x overhead potentially at magnets around Santa Cruz).

A couple of postcards for you this morning, first was snapped a few hours ago at Mesa Lane where a little long period line was showing every 10 mins or so, and the second is a picture yesterday arvo of a spot called El Capitan which can, on rare occasions, fire up in a serious way (think Angourie inside).

Have a great day!

Weather Situation

A high pressure system is slowly moving east across the southern Tasman Sea maintaining a ridge to the New South Wales north coast. Northerly winds will increase during Friday ahead of a gusty southerly change associated with a cold front developing on the south coast in the afternoon, extending to Sydney Waters late evening and to the far north coast during Saturday morning. Winds are expected to briefly turn northerly during Sunday ahead of another south to southwesterly change and east to northeasterly on Monday and Tuesday as another high moves over southeastern Australia.

Junky start for Sydney

Posted on November 13th, 2014 in Big Picture.

Hello Friends,

Kinda messy start to the day, but there should be some chest plus sets at SE magnet spots thanks to an 11-sec, 1.5+ metre swell. The NE wind was 10 kts or so at daybreak, so clean options will be limited or non-existent. And the wind will be with you all day. Tide was low at 0600, so at least there should be some push on the incoming.

Friday outlook seems to be for slightly smaller and more NE conditions ahead of a late SE change. So, not brilliant, but if you’re really keen, there should be a grovel about.

Today’s postcard is a screengrab from offshoretheater’s webcam at California Street in Ventura.

Dribble but not totally hopeless

Posted on November 12th, 2014 in Big Picture.

Hello Friends,

Light offshores and a weak short period combo of south and south-east swell washing into Sydney’s beaches this morning. The MHL buoy was showing 1.5 metres or so of 8-ish second bump, so there should be knee to maybe waist and bit little things at the magnet spots. Tide started coming back in at 0615.

The Bureau says the wind should go more onshore (SE) but be light during the morning before swinging NE after lunch. Best plan is to go now with low expectations.

Tomorrow seems to be shaping up similarly, although it could be NE from early. Friday looks smaller but still possibly do-able.

Here in So Cal the energy levels have come up a tiny touch but it was still really little at winter magnet spots such as California Street and Rincon. Maybe knee to waist. Waves look pretty slow too. Still hopeful of a bump up in the next 24 hours or so. It would be good to have an actual wave picture or two to share. Anyway, here are three postcards for you…

Have a great day!

Weather Situation

A weakening high pressure system west of Tasmania extends a ridge along the NSW coast. Another high pressure centre will develop east of Bass Strait today with winds tending east to northeasterly along the coast. This high will move across the Tasman Sea tomorrow as an intensifying cold front and pre-frontal trough approach western NSW, with northeast winds freshening along the coast. Northerly winds are expected to strengthen further on Friday with the front likely to bring a strong, gusty southerly change to the southern coast later in the day. This change is likely to move along much of the remainder of the coast on Saturday and gradually weaken.

Lake Pacific – again

Posted on November 11th, 2014 in Big Picture.

Hello Friends,

Looks like surfing isn’t really on the agenda this morning, or indeed today. Wind was already ESE 9-10 kts by daybreak and the Bureau says it’ll continue like this through the afternoon. The MHL Sydney buoy is showing about a metre of 6 second period SE wind swell. That likely means nothing above knee to waist high onshore dribble at the biggest spots.  The Eden buoy is showing 9-second period stuff though.

Happily tomorrow is looking a better prospect with a low tide early and the charts showing a south swell filling in later in the day. If it plays out as expected the magnet spots could be seeing chest to head high on the bigger ones. With luck Sydney surfers should have fun ones for a couple of days out of this event.

Wish I could say the same for Santa Barbara. You may have heard about the big system spawned by ex super typhoon Nuri now in the north Pacific. It looks like slinging solid but not record swell at Hawaii. Southern California may or may not score something late this week but in the meantime it’s pretty much flat, particularly in well-protected Santa Barbara.

Have a great day and here’s a little postcard from Cali for you…

Given the dire flatness around here, I’ve decided to share a screen cap from surfline.com’s Pleasure Point cam. Pleasure Point is way up north from here in the wave-rich Santa Cruz area. Even so, it looks pretty feeble and gutless. No sign of big swell there yet.

Weather Situation

A slow-moving trough on the northern New South Wales coast is expected to reach the Queensland border during Tuesday, while a high south of the Bight extends a ridge towards the Tasman Sea. This pattern will maintain southerly winds over coastal areas today, bolstered in the south by the passage of a cold front early this morning. On Wednesday the high is expected to move across Bass Strait to the Tasman Sea, bringing a gradual return to more northerly winds, strengthening Thursday/Friday ahead of the next frontal system on the weekend.

Short-period and tiny here and there

Posted on November 10th, 2014 in Big Picture.

Hello Friends,

Not a great deal going on in Sydney this morning. There’s a mix of straight south and NE wind swell stuff, but at best it’s only around the 8 second mark at about a metre at sea. That means marginal to nearly flat for lots of places. Take the floatiest option in your surf arsenal if you’re keen to get in.

As of 0700 wind was light and SSW, but the Bureau says it’ll swing SE soon and could be up into the 25 kt range by afternoon.

Swell doesn’t look like improving at all today, so might be a good one to be off to work or school.

Tomorrow might see a slight improvement to the swell energy, but the wind is expected to still be SE. By Weds the swell could be a bit bigger again and it might actually be somewhat interesting for the morning sesh. Tide was low today just a bit before 0500 so it’ll be starting to come back in after 0615 on Weds. Combine the incoming push with light and variable winds and it could be fun at south spots. And Thursday looks better still…

Today’s postcard from Cali is a screengrab from swellmagnet.com’s Huntington Beach pier cam. It’s a touch bigger down there than here in Santa Barbara. Got my fingers crossed for later in the week though when we might get a little west pulse if all goes well…

Have a great Monday!

Weather Situation

A fresh southerly wind change follows in the wake of a trough slowly extending up the northern half of the coast expected to exit the region on Tuesday. Winds are expected to ease behind the wind change although remain strong over the South Coast due to a cold front passing over the southern Tasman Sea. Winds will gradually turn to the north again by the end of the week as a high pressure system moves over the Tasman Sea.
