Clean little lines

Posted by: on March 27th, 2018

Hello Friends,

Cloudless skies and a light west wind this morning at daybreak. Feels like autumn. Swell has moved around more to the south overnight and as of 0500 was 1.5 m and coming mainly from 159° (although there was still some small, longer period component out of the NE). The odd nice looking line coming around the point, but no one was on it and I’d guess it was closer to knee than waist high. Up the beach the line looked to be a similar size. At 0500 .The MHL buoy was showing 12-sec period, but it looked a lot closer together than that to me when I grabbed the pics. So, figure on knee with the occasional waist high set.

Tide is dropping to a lowish 0.4 m low at 1215.

Wind should wander around to the easterly quarters this morning and then settle to the NE this afternoon.

Outlook is for swell size to bumble along more or less at the current intensity until Friday when we might see a slight uptick. The swell models were more optimistic about Friday yesterday, but they’re less so today. It will be what it will be of course.

Have yourself a top old Tuesday everyone!

Weather Situation

A southwest to southeasterly flow extends along the New South Wales coast in the wake of a cold front. Winds will begin to turn east to northeasterly by this afternoon as a high pressure system moves over the Tasman Sea and extends a ridge northwest across New South Wales. This high will remain slow-moving for the next few days, before a weak trough moves along the southern coast on Friday.
