Flat good and proper folks. Surfing’s not a thing in Dee Why or Sydney today. And from the look of the forecast models, it’s going to stay this way well into next week.
Sorry not to have gladder tidings, but so it goes. Here’s hoping the east pulse on Friday showing on at least one of the models turns out to be the real thing.
Go well, stay safe and have fun with your Sunday.

This low move very slowly southwards today and into Monday as a ridge of high pressure develops across the state’s north. This pattern will causing westerly winds over the coastal waters over the next few days. Winds will turn southerly later Tuesday as the low weakens and moves away.
