No surf whatsoever at Dee Why on a chilly grey Tuesday morning. We could have a late shower this evening and then we’re in for three rainy, cold days. There is some prospect that the swell will start coming back into the surfable range by Friday and Saturday. But for now, all we can do is wait.
A high pressure system is centred over the northern Tasman Sea whilst a cold front is crossing the west of the state, strengthening northerly winds across all waters ahead of a west to southwesterly change on Wednesday behind the front. Then an East Coast Low looks set to form off the southern coastal waters during the mid-week, although the strength and exact location is still uncertain.
Forecast for Tuesday until midnight
