When I climbed aloft to the RealSurf crows nest for my first look at Tuesday morning, fog had already blanked out the city and not long after grabbing a snap, the murk descended on Dee Why. So, another grey, and murky start to what promises to be a warm day later. And the ocean? Well, you know how it was yesterday? Yep, basically identical settings.
For the record the primary swell direction is ENE. Average height at sea is about a metre and the average period is still bumping along at an utterly gutless 6 seconds.
So, nothing to tempt a surfer really. And, it looks as though the entire east coast has more or less the same issue. If you can find a waist high set anywhere, you’re doing very well.
The forecast models remain bleak for the east coast. There just isn’t much going on in our corner of the SW pacific for the next week.
My advice? Stay happy!
A slow-moving high pressure system over the southeastern Tasman Sea extends a ridge to the northern New South Wales coast, while a weak low pressure trough lies near the southern and central coasts. This trough will shift to the northern coast during Wednesday.
