Foggy early with a southerly by noon

Posted by: on April 26th, 2018

Hello Friends,

Thick fog early. I’ll add pics once it lifts.
Wind was a westerly at 8 kts as of 0720. An hour earlier the MHL buoy was showing less than a metre of east swell at 8 seconds. Tide was a deep 1.7 m high at 0515 and is now dropping to 0.4 m at 1145.
Going by the numbers you’d have to say it’s going to be very small again today, but probably not utterly flat at the magnets. Expect ankle to knee with the odd waist high bomb at the most energetic spots.
The smooth conditions won’t last long though. We’re due to enter southerly world toward midday. Looking at the models I’m not real hopeful about the surf prospects as the predicted periods are in the 6-8 second range, so not much is likely to get into the protected south corners. But we’ll see what the Goat thinks when he posts his latest ruminations later today.
Check back for the pics later, and have yourself a fun Thursday!

Take the SUP 0830

 

Fishing maybe?

 

Weather Situation

A vigorous southerly change associated with a cold front crossing the southern Tasman Sea is moving along the New South Wales far south coat and is expected to reach Sydney Waters on Thursday afternoon and the far north coast in the evening. Southerly winds will gradually ease during Friday and Saturday and tend south to southeasterly as a high pressure system south of the Bight moves very slowly east extending a ridge along the coast.
