Lookin’ like a top morning to get to your fave SE spot and jostle with everybody else for a wave. There are still a few juicy sets in the mix, but it’s definitely dropped overnight and with south wind due around midday, the conditions won’t last long.
Swell was still a couple metres from the SE at 9 seconds apart when the day began. With luck that will hold until it gets hacked up by the southerly by lunchtime.
Outlook for tomorrow is to maybe have a little energy left, but thereafter it’s looking paltry according to this morning’s collection of swell modelling.
So enjoy, but take it easy too eh? Everybody else has been hanging out as well!
TIDES: H @1030 L @1640
Sunny morning, apart from early fog patches in the west. The chance of a light shower in the early afternoon. Light winds tending south to southeasterly up to 30 km/h around midday.
A high pressure system south of the Bight extends a ridge across New South Wales, while a low pressure system over the Tasman Sea moves further east. This high will be the dominant synoptic feature during the next few days as it moves slowly east, maintaining a relatively dry and stable air mass over the region.
