Fun Sunday morning

Posted by: on October 5th, 2014

Hello Friends,

At 0700 the MHL buoy was showing 1.7 metres of SSE swell at 13 seconds. Water temp was sitting on 19 offshore and wind was NW at 4-6kkts. Tide was high at 0615 and will be all the way out at 1210.

Bureau says the wind should be northerly through the day before swinging S-SE late. Swell is expected to fade a little across the day, but with luck it won’t disappear.

As of 0900 Dee Why looked reasonably busy. People at the point were latching onto chest plus sets, while up the beach it looked to be a bit bigger. Surface conditions while not super smooth, were much better than yesterday.

While there should still be swell tomorrow morning, it looks as though the SE’r could be working it over. The wind should swing NE in the afternoon Monday which is unlikely to help much – although the Bureau says the swell should perk slightly, so maybe a north corner or two will come into play.

Longer range outlook is rather springish – ie, marginal for the most part. Right now it looks like maybe we’ll get a bit of activity for the morning sesh on Weds. Things look kinda quiet until late next weekend when, if the models have it right, an extensive and powerful souther ocean low could possibly send us something early in the following week. Maybe. Possibly…

Have yourself a top Sunday!

Not big, but not tiny at 0900

Quality not stunning, but definitely do-able at 0900

Weather Situation

A high pressure system over the Tasman Sea will move east, maintaining a northerly airstream over the coastal waters during the remainder of today and early on Sunday. A weak cold front is expected to bring a southerly change to the southern half of the coast on Sunday followed by northerlies returning and strengthening by the end of the day on Monday. A stronger cold front is expected to cross eastern New South Wales on Tuesday bringing another southerly change.

Hello Friends,

Swell’s faded since its peak around midday yesterday. It’s still out of the S-SSE at around 1-5 metres and as of 0300 the average period was hanging in there at close to 13 seconds. I reckon it’s dropped a little since that data was recorded from the MHL buoy. The biggest sets looked to be maybe in the chest high range. As the pictures show, they’re kinda softish – despite the period – so you wouldn’t be expecting too many barrels.

Tide’s dropping to a low at 1222 and then is back to a modest high at 1810.

From the shape of the forecast models this morning, we could be heading into another week of generally small conditions. There may be a small uptick at NE spots around Thursday-Friday as a medium period NE pulse briefly graces us with a few waist plus sets.

Have a relaxing Monday and remember, just stay happy!

Weather Situation
A high pressure system over the southern Tasman Sea extends a ridge along the New South Wales coast. This high will move very slowly east over the next few days while maintaining a ridge to the north coast. A weak low pressure trough is expected to develop near the southern coast on Wednesday.
