"Stay happy and you'll be perfectly fine" - Jack Norris

Cooler morning but tiny surf

Hello Friends,

After a vigorous south change last night, this morning opened with WSW wind, partly cloudy skies, milder temps and only the barest trickle of surf energy showing at Dee Why.  The 0600 data snapshot from the MHL buoy off Sydney showed 1.7 metres of 8-9 second wind swell from the ENE. There were a couple of hopefuls hanging around at the point but I didn’t see anything catchable come through while I was taking the pics. If you’re keen to get in, I’d be looking at places more dialled into the conditions like North Curly.

I’ll be interested, as always, to see what the Goat has to say later on about our surf prospects for the coming week. I have to say that I’m not seeing anything too amazing on the cards, but check back later to see what he thinks.

Go well with your day!

Weather Situation

A cold front is moving north across northern coastal waters today, with a fresh to strong southerly airstream in the wake of the front. Southerly winds will gradually ease from tomorrow as a new high pressure system drifts across the southeast of the continent while extending a ridge towards the state, reaching the southern Tasman Sea by the end of the week.

Forecast for Thursday until midnight
