South change rattled Sydney’s windows last night and this morning finds grey skies with the chance of a shower and light SSE winds. The MHL Sydney buoy is showing 3 metres of 9 second period south wind swell, but it wasn’t looking too impressive at Dee Why when I first checked it a little after 0700. Looks like the bigger sets could be in the chest high range, but the quality wasn’t impressive enough to persuade anyone to get wet as the day got started.
The outlook is for this pulse to fade steadily through the day and be back to very small in about 24-36 hours. From the latest run of the models it seems that we’re in for tiny to nearly flat conditions through Wednesday. At least one of the models is showing a brief long period pulse out of the south around Thursday morning. So, if you have to pencil one in, I guess that’s the day I’d choose.
Have yourself a top old day!
