Un-summery touch of cool to the air this morning, but there were glassy little bumps to chase at Dee Why beach. Size looked to be in the knee to waist range and seemed to be relatively consistent too. Plus, there were more peaks than have been evident over the last few days. So nothing amazing, but definitely waves to be had.
As of 0500, swell was out of the SSE at a touch under 2 metres with an average period of 9 seconds.
Wind will eventually pick up from the SE, but the call is for 10-15 kts. Swell should hang in there but it’s on a downward trend toward maybe half the size tomorrow.
Tide’s low at 0900 and back to high at 1500.
The outlook continues to be for a small to marginal front half of the week with an extended east swell regime arriving from around Thursday and sticking around (potentially) into early next week. So, hooray for that!
Have yourself a great Sunday!
