Lovely sunny morning with light offshores and a somewhat raw and disorganised south swell showing at Dee Why point and along the beach. It was 2.3 m and dead south at 12 seconds. When I checked the at 0840 sets at the point looked to be in the waist to chest range and chest to shoulder up toward No Mans. Swell energy is expected to fade across the day but the wind should stay light and variable while the high will be a delightful 23 and sunny. Next tide is a low at 1140.
Get one for me, okay?
Have a top old Sunday.
A cold front over the southern Tasman Sea and a ridge over southeast Australia are directing generally southerly winds over New South Wales waters. As the front moves further to the east and the ridge extends over the Tasman Sea, winds will generally shift north to northeasterly by Monday. The next front is likely to bring a southerly change to the coast on Wednesday or Thursday.
