Warm and getting warmer from the get go Sunday morning. Swell at sea was 1.35 metre from the east at 10 seconds as of 0800 and the wind was coming from the west at 7-9 kts. Given the numbers, I’d expect a little more to be showing at Dee Why, but it was looking close to flat from the RealSurf crows nest. Tide was just coming into the 0930 high when I grabbed the snaps, so maybe there were little shories just out of my sightline… but I’d be astounded if there was anything above knee high along the beaches this morning.
This morning’s run of the swell models points to another very small day tomorrow morning, but with a gradual build that may see some fun size energy on Tuesday…
Go well with your Sunday everyone!
A high pressure system over the Tasman Sea currently extends a ridge towards New South Wales, and is directing generally northerly winds over coastal waters. Northerly winds will freshen during Tuesday and Wednesday, ahead of a cooler southerly change.
