Dee Why was looking almost perfectly flat this morning and there is no obvious reason to think it’ll change for the next 24-48 hours. A good day to catch up on the non-surfing stuff.
From the look of this morning’s swell prediction models, we’re going to have to wait until Thursday morning for a reasonable prospect of waves. If the computers have it right, we could see a little NE windswell action in the knee to waist plus range then – but with rainy weather. By Friday morning, the models are showing the swell out of the east at a couple of metres at 8 seconds along with offshores and partly cloudy skies as the day goes along.
Have a great Monday everyone!
Fresh west to northwesterly winds are expected to ease during Monday as a high pressure system moves over the state. Then the high will contract to the Tasman Sea as the next low pressure system moves into the western inland, with winds increasing and tending easterly as the low moves across the coast during Thursday.
