Almost no wind as Wednesday got started, but it should gradually come up from the east as the morning goes along. Dee Why was very small and weak looking at 0620 when I checked it for the first time. Waves look to be maybe knee high on sets. Waves are coming from the east and the MHL buoy was showing 1.2 m at 9 seconds as of 0400. There’s an obvious downward trend in the data and that’s consistent with the Bureau’s marine forecast (see below). Tide is heading to a 1.68 m high at 1115 and we should see a high of 24 this afternoon.
The tiny conditions look like continuing – and even declining – through to late in the weekend when some of the models are pointing to a slight improvement to our prospects for a little wave at east magnets. If it gets into the waist high range by Sunday morning, I reckon we’ll be doing well.
Have a great Wednesday and go well with your plans!
A high pressure system over the southern Tasman Sea is moving east very slowly, whilst maintaining a ridge to the north/northwest and is directing southeast to northeasterly winds along the New South Wales coast
