So, nothing doing on the surf front this morning for Dee Why. Swell is straight south and about 1.5 metres with a period of 9 seconds. Wind was coming faintly from the NW at 0730. Tide was ramping up to a swampy 1.9 m high at 1010. We’re going to a high of 29 on what is forecast to be a sunny day. While there aren’t any waves at the south end, there might be a little something into the knee plus range up the beach toward Longy, but I don’t think you’ll find much of anything above waist high anywhere along the beaches.
The Goat should be along later with his thoughts about the surf prospects for the weekend and next week. I hope he’ll see something, because my reading of the runes is that we could be facing a proper summer style flat spell. Really hope to be proven wrong!
Have yourself a top old Thursday everyone.
A weak ridge of high pressure extends across the region with northerly winds generally prevailing next couple of days. A cold front passing to the south will bring a brief southerly change to the far south coast this afternoon.
