Drizzling Dee Why

Nothing at No Mans – again

Little burgery bumps at Kiddies 0745

Hello Friends,

Another day of weak and gutless little bumps for Dee Why. I suppose you might be able to bobble along a few metres on the bigger ones, but with 6-9 kts of SSE wind and a steady drizzle under gloomy skies, getting in the water’s not the most appetizing prospect. The Bureau tells us that the percipitation is most likely this morning and this afternoon. Out at sea the MHL buoy was riding gently up and down on 1.3 m of 9-second dead south swell. Tide hit a 1.56 m high at 0615 and is now dropping to a low at 1240.

Looking at the swell models this morning suggests that our current weak knee to waist high conditions are likely to persist for at least the next 7 days. And if the long range predictions are to be believed, we aren’t in for any real improvement between now and New Years.

Have yourself a great Wednesday one and all!

 

Weather Situation

A high over the northern Tasman Sea extends a ridge towards the northern coast, while a second high lies to the south of Tasmania. A weak trough between these two systems lies about the Hunter coast, with predominantly north to northeasterlies to the north of the trough and south to southeasterlies to its south. As the trough dissipates today, winds will tend north to northeasterly throughout. A second trough near Adelaide is moving east, and is forecast to bring a southerly change to southern waters of New South Wales late Thursday and to central and northern waters on Friday.
