Do you like southerlies and rain? Well, you got it this morning in Sydney. Wind is pushing along at 15-20 kts right now and is due to pick up into the 20-30 kt range. Tide’s running up to the high at 0900 and Dee Why isn’t the better for it. There was a single person in the water chasing junky lumps in the corner amidst the chop and rafts of seaweed in the impact zone.
Outlook for the rest of the day is not good, and tomorrow and Wednesday look like more of the same but maybe with less rain.
Oh well, looks like a few days to get things done. Maybe later in the week we’ll see some improvement to the settings. This morning’s interpretations of the wave models is pointing toward reasonable prospects for early risers from Thursday through Saturday. We shall see!
Have yourself a top old day.
A low pressure trough over eastern parts of the state will develop into a low off the Mid North Coast on Monday. The low is expected to move rapidly to the south-southeast during Tuesday and Wednesday as a high pressure system moves south of the Bight extending a ridge to the north coast.
