Mainly cloudy but a few spots of brighter sky about too. No wind to speak of as of 0730, but it will eventually get up to 10-15 kts from the east to NE. There’s about a metre of 12 second period SE swell, so it’s not flat, but when I grabbed the first pics of the day, I couldn’t see anyone in the water at Dee Why. There were very occasional set wave faces into the chest high range, but the woeful bank situation continues and it looked to pretty much be a case of all shutdowns all the time.
Tide hits a highish high at 0810 and then drops to low at 1445.
Swell outlook remains uninspiring for the next week or so. It looks as though what we’re seeing this morning is what we’re likely to see into the coming weekend.
As with yesterday, the very long range projections are still pointing toward a significant run of solid east swell beginning at the end of next week. If the modelling has anything to do with reality, we’re looking at days of overhead east swell with sunny days and mainly light winds. Such a delightful dream… hope it comes true and doesn’t just fade away as we get closer.
Have yourself a top old Tuesday!
