About a metre of 7.5 sec east swell as this morning got started. Wind was light from the WNW under partly cloudy skies. There were a few people in the water at the point and along the beach, but wave faces were struggling to make the knee high mark. If you can’t get in the water, at least you aren’t missing much at Dee Why. To the extent it matters, tide was low at 0730 and will be high again at 1330.
Outlook from the Goat is not super encouraging I have to say. Oh well, what can ya do? Huey’ll be back in his own time I guess.
Have yourself a fine Friday everyone!
A strong high pressure system over the southern Tasman Sea is very slowly moving east, maintaining a ridge across New South Wales and directing northeast to northwesterly winds across New South Wales Waters. This ridge is expected to gradually weaken over the next few days as the high moves further east. A cold front is forecast to move up the coast during Sunday and Monday, shifting winds southerly.
