Less than a metre of 10-sec SSE bump out at sea means that we go into Friday with no surf prospects at Dee Why – or anywhere else in Sydney.
We’re headed to a high of 36C along the coast. Water is sitting on 19C.
Outlook you ask? Ah, we have the wisdom of the Goat to consider…
Have at great Friday and keep cool!
A high pressure system centred over the northern Tasman sea and a cold front approaching from the west are directing northerly winds over New South Wales waters. A weak southerly change will move through southern coastal waters late Friday and early Saturday ahead of the front, while a stronger west to southwesterly change will sweep through most New South Wales waters on Saturday with the passage of the front.
Forecast for Friday until midnight
