Little waves this morning at Dee Why

Posted by: on April 27th, 2016

Hello Friends,

Light offshores under sunny skies as the day kicked off at Dee Why. Wind is due to pick up from the NE later and be around 15-20 kts this afternoon. At 0600 swell at sea was coming from the east. It was about 1.3 metres out there and 8-9 seconds apart. That makes it a touch smaller than yesterday, but as the pictures show, it was possible to pick up a waist high set at the point. Tide was low at 0540 and will hit high at 1140. It should stay sunny and get to 25 (about 2C above historical average by the way).
Outlook is for waves to stay around the same size through to the end of the week and the long range forecasts are currently pointing toward the front half of next week being more marginal.
Have yourself a great Wednesday everyone and stay happy!

Winds will turn east to northeasterly during Tuesday, then will remain north to northeasterly for the rest of the week.

Faded to almost, but not quite, flat

Hello Friends,

Very quiet this morning. Smooth seas and a faint line showing at the point and up the beach at Dee Why. Tide hits a 1.8m high at 0810, so what little we have is also struggling against too much water. There were one or two bods in the water along the beach at Dee Why and as the picture shows, one of them did get caught behind on a waist high set, so it’s not totally flat.

Longer range outlook has not brightened to any extent this morning. We’ve got a south change in prospect for tomorrow morning, but it doesn’t seem likely to produce much in the way of wave energy. Instead we’re probably going to get some very short period and choppy wind blown junk in the knee to waist range. I hope the Goat has something more hopeful in his outlook for the week ahead ’cause it’s looking paltry to me atm.

Gotta jam, so have yourself a top old Thursday one and all!

Weather Situation

A weak ridge of high pressure is over the Tasman Sea, a trough is over the northeast of the state and another weak ridge is over the inland. Southerly winds along the coast behind the trough are expected to tend northeasterly in the south during the day. The trough is expected to stall on the far north coast. A cold front moving northeast across the Southern Ocean is expected to reach the far south coast early Friday bringing a southerly change, which will then move along the coast during the day, reaching the far north early Saturday. A high moving through Bass Strait in the wake of the front should be over the southern Tasman Sea over the weekend. Southeast winds on Saturday will tend back to the northeast in the south later Saturday and over the remainder on Sunday as the high moves further east.

Forecast for Thursday until midnight

Winds
South to southwesterly 15 to 20 knots shifting north to northeasterly 10 to 15 knots in the evening.
Seas
1.5 to 2 metres, decreasing to 1 to 1.5 metres around midday.
Swell
Easterly below 1 metre.
Weather
Mostly sunny.

Sticky: Got wet, how ’bout you?

Set!

Very, very rare

Point set

Hello Friends,

Sorry about the late report, but went for a wave early, had a meeting and got back late. Messed around in the cute offshore but mainly shutting down chest plus waves near Marquesas. Very few of us in the water too. You had to pick ’em pretty carefully because the better sets were unloading in waist deep water. Got through unscathed, so that’s all to the good.

Swell has moved around to the east per the predictions. It’s currently around the 1.3 metre mark with an average period of about 9 seconds. It’s twice that size way up north, so everything looks right for the predicted increase to happen over the next 24 hours or so. It’s not clear to me if we can expect to see much change before dark today though.

If the Bureau and the models have it right, we should see some very nice conditions for Friday and Saturday – particularly at those beaches that really like an east swell.

Next tide is the high at 1630.

Have yourself a fine Thursday!

Weather Situation
A ridge of high pressure extends across southern New South Wales, while a low intensifies over the Coral Sea. The combination of these systems will maintain southerly winds along much of the coast today, with the ridge bringing light variable winds in the south. A cold front is expected to cross the State during Friday and Saturday, bringing a west to southwesterly change. Another weaker front is forecast to follow on Sunday.
