Nice morning with light offshores and a couple metres of south swell with a 9 second period. Should be fun at all the south magnets. And crowded at the better ones. Dee Why currently has a little complex of peaks just north of the club, so most of the population is hanging around there chasing mainly lefts in the chest plus range. Quite a few mals out this morning too, so that may hint at something.
Wind should stay SW all day and be pretty fresh again (15-25 kts). Low tide’s at 0905 and high is at 1530. So the morning should be fun at a lot of places.
Outlook is for the swell to hold at about the current size and then to maybe pulse up a bit tomorrow, before dropping back into the waist plus range from Tuesday. The good news is that there should be waves of some description for pretty much the whole week.
Get out and have yourself some fun!
A low pressure system over the southern Tasman Sea will continue to bring fresh to strong southwesterly winds over the southern NSW coast on Sunday. The low is expected to move slowly east during the next couple of days, maintaining a southwesterly airstream over NSW coast. A high is then expected to develop south of Tasmania early next week, extending a ridge along the southern NSW coast Tuesday/Wednesday.
