Cold start with tiny lines

Posted by: on August 5th, 2020

Hello Friends,

Brrr. 7C at RealSurf HQ at 0700. A brisk SW’ly was making it feel closer to 4C. Should warm up to 17 C and stay sunny all day. There were a few folk in the 17C water at the point but I didn’t see anyone along the beach. Size looked to be in the waist high range and surface conditions were super smooth thanks to the offshores. The waverider buoy data indicated 1.5 m of east swell at 10-11 seconds apart. Given those numbers, I’d guess there will be better aligned stretches where sets are probably above the waist high mark. Tide hits high at 0930 and will be low again at 1500.
Tomorrow will be sunny and a bit colder. From Friday onward the Bureau says it’ll be basically pouring. The Bureau says 20-30mm Friday, 8-30mm Saturday and 15-30mm Sunday before backing off to 6-15mm on Monday. So, get those outdoor activities taken care of now and tomorrow.
It’ll be interesting to see the Goat’s take tomorrow afternoon. From this morning’s ECM and Wavewatch models, energy levels should come up a bit and maybe pulse into the 3m range on Monday…
Take care and mask up when you’re inside with others!

Weather Situation
Strengthening west to southwesterly winds will affect the coastal waters today in a association with a cold front that recently crossed southern New South Wales. These winds will ease during Thursday as a high pressure ridge moves across the region. Following this, winds are forecast to slowly turn northeasterly by Friday, as a broad low pressure system approaches New South Wales from the west. This low is expected to cross the coast and move over the Tasman Sea by the weekend.
