Light winds this morning and a little trickle of east wind swell for the keen amongst us. According to the MHL data, the primary swell direction is east, the average height at sea is a touch over a metre and average period is a light and fluffy 7 seconds.
Where Dee Why’s concerned there’s not much to say. A few bods were in the water getting a bit of paddling exercise. Every now and again a knee high set turns up to add a bit of interest to a quiet morning in the water.
The wind should stay light and variable this morning but the Bureau says that by this evening it should go south to southeasterly. We’re then in for at least a weekend of generally south wind, although it looks to me as though the early mornings might be okay (at least in terms of the wind).
The Goat’s has taken his usual wise look at our surf prospects as the week draws to a close…
Next tide is a low at 0950 and the high will come in at 1555
Hope you have a successful Friday!
