You’ll need to be super keen to paddle out this morning. Dee Why was junky and mostly small under rainy skies. There were a few diehards in the water, but although size on sets along the beach was into the shoulder high range on the biggest ones, the utter lack of banks made it look extremely unappetizing. A day for other things I’d say.
Long term outlook has gone all blah on us as well. The models are all pointing toward a week plus of marginal to small conditions. Nothing really standing out in this morning’s collection of interpretations. Might be a little something across the next three days, but early next week is currently looking pretty tiny.
Ah well, the energy always returns, so on with other things for now eh?
Keep on smilin’!

A strong high lies over the southern Tasman Sea while a trough extends from northern Queensland through western New South Wales. The inland trough is forecast to begin moving eastwards later today, with a transient low expected to develop off the New South Wales coast by the end of Friday. This system should move rapidly away to the east during the weekend as the Tasman Sea high weakens and a new, although fairly feeble, ridge extends across the state.
