Swell’s perked overnight, we have sunny skies along the beaches as the day kicks off and wind was just a light WSW at 0800. Set waves look to be in the chest to shoulder high range and there were a good number of wave hunters in the water chasing them too. Tide’s dropping to the low at 1225.
Swell at sea is 1.6 metres at 9-10 seconds from the east (109°).
The Goat should be along with his weekly outlook but in the meantime, for what it’s worth, I’m liking the look of tomorrow morning.
Beachwatch is warning that pollution’s possible from Northy to Freshwater, and the Manly stretch is ‘pollution likely’. From Warriewood north to Palmy has been given the all-clear.
Go well, and take care!
A low pressure system near the southern Queensland coast will move south to southeast over the coming days. Meanwhile, a high pressure system over the southern Tasman Sea will maintain a weak ridge across the south until the tail end of a cold front brushes the southern coast on Friday bringing a south to southwesterly change. Another cold front on the weekend will extend southwesterly winds throughout.
