Light fog just burning off when at 0700 when I grabbed the pictures. It looks as though the energy levels might be ever so slightly higher than yesterday. The MHL data shows no real change in the height (1 m) or direction (E by ESE) from yesterday, but as of 0500 the period was nearly 13 seconds out at sea – which is up a fair amount from yesterday’s 8 or so seconds. I didn’t see either of the punters at the point score a wave, but looking at it, I’d guess they’re getting the odd barely catchable knee plus one along the rocks. So nothing to get excited about really, but there might be the occasional set.
We’re heading to a high of 26 along the coast today and there’s a 60% chance of a light shower. Wind should be out of the east to SE but only around the 10 kt mark. Tide was high at 0520 and will be back to low at 1120 – when you might have the best chance of finding a wave.
Tomorrow looks like being more or less similar to today but from Friday the NE wind should start to kick in pretty hard. That may push up some junky wind swell for the semi-protected north corners.
Looking out to next week there seems to be some hope for a little influx from east which could stick around for a few days…
Have a great Wednesday everybody and keep on smilin’!
A slow-moving high pressure system near New Zealand extends a ridge towards northeast New South Wales, directing generally east to northeasterly winds along the coast. Winds will freshen towards the end of the week ahead of a more significant southerly change later on the weekend.
