Waves again for Tuesday morning

Posted by: on May 21st, 2019

Update: musta seen pulse of the day because at point now and it’s really inconsistent and mostly waist high on sets. Lots people up at the lugga and the bombies but only a few from there south. Size looks better but inconsistent too.

Hello Friends,
Good news, we have shoulder plus on the bigger sets at Dee Why this morning. The point seemed to be liking the combo of 9-10 kts of NW wind, a mid tide (it’s high at 1000) and 14-sec 1.4 metre swell out of the SSE. An easy dozen folks were on it, but it looked pretty consistent considering, so maybe not too bad. Thoughts on outlook later.

Hazard reduction burns plus winter inversion = air pollution in the city

And another set

Weather Situation
A high pressure system over the Tasman Sea is slowly moving east and weakening, while maintaining a ridge across the state. This ridge will be the dominating feature over the northern half of the coast much of the week, whilst a weak trough is bringing a southerly change over the South Coast. This trough is expected to develop into a weak low pressure system off the South Coast or Illawarra Coast by late tonight or early Wednesday, bringing a moderate southerly wind change to Hunter Coast by the end of Wednesday.
