The southerly hadn’t kicked in when I first looked at the ocean around 0700. But it should be along soon and we’ll be looking at 25-33 kts. We’re set to have a bit of rain later too. Swell was looking pretty feeble at Dee Why. It’s a couple metres from the south, but the average period is around 8 seconds, so the people in the water at Dee Why were struggling to get into knee to waist high sets. From the shape of the forecast, we’re not in for much of interest tomorrow, but maybe on Wednesday we’ll see a SE swell-NE window combo worth the effort.
Outlook for later in the week is more stuff in the so-so category, but there should be at least a little something in the mornings if you’re keen enough.
Have yourself a top old Monday!
