Southerly bumps on Friday morning

Posted by: on December 21st, 2018

0650 bumpy and small but not flat

Weak lines

Point not happening but jumky little things at Kiddies 0650

Hello Friends,

Grey skies again, but no rain on the radar as Friday kicks off. As of 0700 the North Head weather station was seeing 7-12 kts of SSW wind and out at sea the MHL buoy was detecting 2 metres of 6-sec SSE (144-152°) wind swell. As you can see from the pictures, there were junky and weak little knee to maybe waist high lumps at the Dee Why end of the beach. Tide hits a deepish 1.8 m high at 0745 and will be back to low at 1420.

There’s a medium chance of a light shower at some point today as we head to a high of 24. The wind should pick up from the south at 15-25 kts later. Beachwatch hadn’t updated as I was writing this, but yesterday it was indicating suss water fcom Narrabeen to the Bower. Temp was 20°.

As is his wont the Goat has dropped a Christmas forecast and his annual holiday message for your consideration. Pure Goat if I may say so!

Have a find Friday and stay happy!

 

Weather Situation

A high over the northern Tasman Sea extends a ridge towards the far northern coast. A low pressure trough over central parts of NSW will continue to move to the northeast, with a secondary trough stretching through western inland parts. This is directing east to northeasterly winds along the coast ahead of a fresh to strong southerly change, moving to the far northern coastline this evening. Another southerly change will move up the NSW late Friday into Saturday.
