Back to flat at the point and Kiddies for Sunday morning.

Hello Friends,

Yesterday’s little pulse faded away overnight and this morning started out drizzly with light wind. The MHL data was showing a metre of 8-sec SE wind swell. As the pictures show, there really weren’t any waves to speak of at the Dee Why end of the beach. If you’re really keen, you might find something in the knee high range at a more south exposed spot up the beach or around at Curly, but I’d be taking my little wave toy.
Not that it matters much, but tide’s low at 0925 and will be low again at 1555. Wind should pick up from the SW during the day.
Tomorrow the Bureau says we can expect a mix of south and east swell components. The models aren’t lining up on the consequences, but it’s at least looking plausible for some chest high sets at better spots.
Beyond that things are looking pretty, er, springy, ie marginal to flat.
Anyway, have yourself a fun Sunday!

Weather Situation
West to northwesterly winds are expected across New South Wales waters today, before a cold front and associated fresh to strong south to southwesterly change move up the coast later today and early on Monday. Following the front, a weak high pressure system is forecast to slowly drift across the region, with the next significant frontal system due towards the end of the week.
Forecast for Sunday until midnight
Winds
West to northwesterly 15 to 20 knots turning west to southwesterly in the early afternoon then shifting south to southwesterly 15 to 25 knots in the late afternoon or evening.

Hello Friends,

Tide was low at 0450 and is now coming into the high at 1105. Not that it matters. It was too small to attract any surfers to Dee Why that I could see. The MHL buoy was showing a metre of 8-sec SSE bump at 0600, so you might possibly get a knee high wobbler at a south magnet but you”ll need to be patient and have the appropriate equipment.
Outlook, according to most of the models, is for the swell to ramp up significantly late Wednesday, early Thursday. The prospect is currently for around head high (with plusses) at SSE spots early but then they predict it’ll fade to chest to maybe shoulder and hold around that level through Friday. Wind could be briskly SW across Thursday but a bit lighter Friday morning.
Have yourself a great Monday one and all!

Hello Friends,

Swell has come up just a touch from yesterday. The MHL buoy was showing a metre of 8-sec SSE windswell and wind at North Head was out of the west at 10 kts as of 0750. Tide will be high at 0845. There were no takers at the point – unsurprisingly – but there looked to be some catchable little bumps up the beach toward no mans. Didn’t see anyone actually catch one so I’m guessing when I say it might be in the knee and a bit range.
You need to get on it ASAP because the Bureau says it expects the swell to drop as we get toward midday. Should be a sunny one too.
Outlook? Well, I’ll refer you to our peerless seer, the Goat.
Have yourself a great Friday everyone!

Very small on Monday morning

Posted by: on October 12th, 2015

Hello Friends,

In line with yesterday’s forecast, Monday morning sees a metre of 8 second SSE swell out at sea and maybe a third of that at Dee Why. Surface conditions were smooth at 0700 thanks to a light NNW breeze. Skies were clear. Next tide is a high at 0840.
Outlook is for the wind to stay northerly through the day but for a late southerly change to come through this evening. We might even get a shower or two.
Tomorrow looks to be cloudy with a medium chance of showers and southerlies of 25-30 kts. Unfortunately it doesn’t appear that we’ll get anything much in the way of surf out of the wind event – just a slight uptick in short period wind swell.
The long range models are all pretty quiet too. There seems to be some slight prospect of a little uptick Friday-Saturday, but at this stage it’s likely to be marginal at best.
Patience friends, patience.
Go well and have yourself a fine Monday!

Barely anything showing this morning

Warm from early

Hello Friends,

28 degrees at 0800 on a sunny Sunday morning with only a faint NW breeze. Ocean was looking utterly micro at Dee Why as we headed toward high tide at 0820. Only the odd ski paddler to be seen off the beach. The MHL Sydney buoy wasn’t working, but I’d have to think it’d be struggling to show anything above a metre out at sea. SE magnet spots might possibly have the occasional knee high bomb, but otherwise, I’d be expecting ankle to calf at best.

We should see the NE’r kick in at a standard summer issue 15-20 kts this afternoon. That might possibly bump up a little onshorey something for the super keen. But I wouldn’t set my hopes too high.

Tomorrow and Tuesday look to be a continuation of the minor NE windswell trend – although the Bureau warns us that the wind will be pretty strong in the afternoon.

If the swell models have it right, there may possibly be a little hint of swell on Boxing Day, but between now and then it’s pretty quiet looking.

Maybe go for a swim?

Ah well, enjoy your Sunday one and all and catch you again tomorrow.

Maybe there’ll be waves in NZ…

Weather Situation

A high pressure system off the New South Wales coast will drift slowly east during the coming days, while maintaining a ridge towards the Queensland coast. This will generate north to northeasterly winds in most coastal areas, becoming fresh to strong early in the new week, particularly for southern and central waters. A trough developing near the state’s western border is forecast to bring a southerly change to southern and central areas mid-week before decaying, with some indications that a more vigorous southerly change may arrive on Friday.

Sticky: Micro Monday at Dee Why

Posted by: on August 26th, 2013

Aw Huey...
Hello Friends,

The first full day of the We’re RealSurf crowdfunding drive and not a wave to be seen. C’mon Huey, help us out here mate! This is supposed to be a surf report and I don’t have any surf to report. Instead there’s maybe a metre of SSE wind swell which is barely registering at Dee Why. All the other settings are right; clear skies, wind is offshore and the tide’s okay for the early.

The Bureau’s waves forecast does not make a pretty picture. Their whizzy new meteye page is projecting a steady fade to absolute flatness as Monday goes along. Yowch! And, on current reckoning, it’ll pretty much stay that way across the Sydney region until late in the week.

So, plenty of time for yours truly to apply his noggin to the challenge of reaching the crowdfunding target… (queue thinking music…)

While I’m thinking, you could do RealSurf a huge favour and not only pitch in a little something but also help us get the word out to anyone you think should hear about the We’re RealSurf crowdfunding project. And thank you in advance!

Weather Situation
A high pressure system over southeastern Australia extends a ridge to the northwestern Tasman Sea. This high will move over the western Tasman Sea early Monday and then it is expected to move slowly east maintaining the ridge to New South Wales north coast.

Slight

Hello Friends,

Not much happening this morning, but at least there’s a little something for the keen. At 0700, Dee Why was showing sets into the waist high plus range along the beach – but nothing at the point. The MHL buoy data indicates a SSE swell of about a metre with an average period of a touch under 8 seconds.

It should be a sunny day, but the light NW of the early morning is set to move more north and even NE as it gets up into the 15-25 kt range.

My hunch is that by noon the surf options will have pretty much faded away at most spots. The south magnets will be the last to fizzle out. And, if the swell forecast models have it right, there might be only a trickle of surf opportunities across the next three days. And the longer range forecast… let’s just say that spring looks to have sprung.

Tide is low at 0900 and then back to high at 1545.

Have yourself a great Friday one and all!

Weather Situation

Sunday rolls slowly along

Posted by: on September 23rd, 2012

Hello Friends

If you are extra keen, there should be some tiny knee to waist high lines about the place. But don’t expect to see the bigger ones too often, particularly as we start to see the high tide take effect (it peaks at 1415). This morning saw light northerly wind and about a metre of 8 second period SSE wind swell lapping in. Should be a sunny and beautiful day for Sydney, so well worth getting out and about in one way or another.

Outlook for the week ahead is strictly so-so. More spring blahs really with not much prospect of cracking the waist high mark for most of the time. There is some potential for a brief increase around mid-week, but it could be in the context of showery weather with SE’ly wind and such.

So enjoy your Sunday and have yourself a great time.

Weather Situation
A a gusty southerly change associated with a cold front will develop on the south coast later today, extending to the north coast during Monday. Behind the front a high pressure system will move south of the Bight extending a ridge to the western Tasman Sea. The high is expected to be centred off New South Wales coast later on Tuesday or early Wednesday.
Forecast for Sunday until midnight
Winds
North to northwesterly about 10 knots tending north to northeasterly 15 to 20 knots in the middle of the day then shifting south to southwesterly in the late evening.
Seas
Below 1 metre increasing to 1 to 1.5 metres during the afternoon.

Sticky: A last little trickle

Posted by: on September 3rd, 2012


Hello Friends,

The little pulse of south-east wind swell over the weekend has weakened away to about a metre at sea. At Dee Why this resulted in the very occasional waist high set as the day got started. Outlook is for the waves to weaken away to pretty much nothing by tonight. I didn’t get in myself, but word has it that the water temps are about as cold as they’ve been this year. The MHL buoy is showing 17 degrees offshore, but it could well be less than that along the beaches.

From the shape of the forecast models, the east coast will be quiet for a few days yet, but there might be a little something into the interesting range again next weekend.

Have a good Monday everyone.

Tides: H @0945 L @1555

Weather Situation
A slow-moving high pressure system is centred over New South Wales, promoting fine conditions with generally light winds along the coast today. A cold front currently off the west Australian coast is expected to cross the New South Wales coast on Thursday, preceded by strengthening north to northwesterly winds.
Forecast for Monday until midnight
Winds
Variable about 10 knots becoming northeasterly 10 to 15 knots inshore during the afternoon.

Sticky: Hot and tiny…for now

Hello Friends,

This morning’s forecast tells us we can expect it to get up to 36 before a south change develops in the afternoon. From the cast of the latest models it would seem that we’re not likely to see much in the way of wave action this afternoon. It looks as though the peak will hit overnight, but there should be some energy in the morning tomorrow. The problem is that we’re also set to have southerlies (and grey skies), so the quality prospects don’t look too flash. There could be some sizable sets in the protected corners though. According to the models, the pulse is likely to fade very quickly.

Stay cool and go well!

TIDES: H @0700, L @1340

Weather Situation
A high pressure system north of New Zealand extends a ridge to southern Queensland, while a trough of low pressure lies across southern and central parts of the New South Wales coast. This trough will link with a cold front today, pushing a southerly change along much of the coast as a ridge builds across the south. This pattern then looks set to remain relatively unchanged through to the end of the week, when another high strengthens from the west before moving to the Tasman Sea.

Forecast for Tuesday until midnight
Winds: Northwesterly 15 to 20 knots tending west to northwesterly 15 to 25 knots during the morning then tending west to southwesterly around midday. A southerly change 20 to 30 knots during the afternoon. Seas: Up to 1.5 metres increasing up to 3 metres during the afternoon. Swell: Southerly about 1 metre tending easterly 1 metre later. Isolated thunderstorms this afternoon and evening.

Forecast for Wednesday
Winds: South to southeasterly 15 to 20 knots tending east to southeasterly 10 to 15 knots during the morning then tending east to northeasterly during the afternoon. Seas: 1.5 to 2 metres decreasing to below 1 metre during the morning. Swell: Easterly 2 metres tending southerly about 2 metres from the morning.

Forecast for Thursday
Winds: Northeasterly 10 to 15 knots tending west to northwesterly during the morning then tending northeast to northwesterly up to 10 knots during the afternoon. Winds tending east to southeasterly up to 15 knots during the evening. Seas: Below 1 metre. Swell: Southerly about 1.5 metres. Isolated thunderstorms from midday.
