Barely there for the early

Posted by: on November 30th, 2019

Hello Friends,

Another dense atmosphere morning for Sydney and the Bureau has the following warning on its Saturday forecast:

A POOR Air Quality Forecast alert issued by the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment (DPIE) due to forecast elevated PM2.5 levels in Sydney for Saturday.

It’s right at the lower end of surfability this morning at Dee Why and Narrabeen. If you figure ankle to knee with the odd thigh high bomb set, your expectations should be close to reality. Wind has come around to south and was 12-15 kts when I grabbed the pictures at 0630-0640.

Tide is currently running into what will be a swampy high at 1135. The bump is coming from the SSE-SE at 7 seconds apart and about 1.3 metres out at sea.

Outlook is for conditions to deteriorate surfwise as the day goes along and right now I’m not seeing much of interest on the models until around midweek when there seems to be prospect of a small south pulse into the waist-ish range.

Have yourself a top old Saturday everyone!
