Not a Saturday to be up early for a wave. The MHL buoy was showing only 0.6 m or short period wind chop from the north as of daybreak. Wind was 10-25 kts from the WNW and air temps were around the 13C mark as of 0630. So, flat, blasting offshores and cold. Lovely.

Have a top old Saturday!
A cold front will move through New South Wales waters today, accompanied by a vigorous west to southwesterly wind shift. A second front is forecast to clip southeastern Australia late Sunday and early Monday. Following this, winds will gradual ease as a high pressure system slowly approaches from the west.
