Looks like little knee high wavelets for the keen before work/school crew. Thursday kicked off with mainly clear skies and a light easterly fanning what is a 10-sec 1.5 metre SSE swell out at sea. Tide was high at 0600 and will hit low at 1145. From the look of the marine forecast, the clean early conditions aren’t going to last beyond late morning.
The Goat should be along with his weekly outlook later today, so check back toward dusk to see what he has to say.
Have a great Thursday!
A high pressure system over western New South Wales is weakening as a cold front approaches from the Southern Ocean, while a new high builds over the Tasman Sea. Between these highs, a trough extends from Queensland into northeast New South Wales. The approaching cold front will skim across the state’s south during Friday, with an associated southerly change pushing northwards along the coast on Saturday. Another cold front looks set to pass to the south on Sunday, after which a new high is forecast to push a ridge over southeast Australia.
