Dull, grey but not flat

Posted on October 17th, 2018 in Dee Why.

Hello Friends,

Steady 8-15 kts of NNE wind under heavily overcast skies as Wednesday gets into gear. As the pictures show, conditions are not overly interesting at the Dee Why end of the beach. Might be a bit more interesting up at Longy where it’s more protected from the wind. At 0400 the MHL buoy was showing most energy coming from the east. It was about 2.5 metres at around 9 seconds. As with yesterday, we have a mix of south around to NNE swells.

The NE’r is expected to get up to 20-25 kts and the swell should continue to push along at about the current intensity. We can expect a shower or two across the day. Tide is low at 0845 and the high will be along at 1520. According to Beachwatch, ocean temp is sitting on 18C.

Outlook is for the wind to stay N-NE at about the current intensity through Friday. Saturday looks like being showery and NE as well, but there might be a window of opportunity for the early session. However, the models show the swell decreasing slightly but staying in the surfable range. Sunday should see more rainfall, but we’re expected to have SW wind early, so again, there may be another shot at something passable on Sunday morning – question is, will there be much swell energy left?

Have a top old Wednesday and get up to some good where you can!

No takers at the point 0720

Another messy morning with size

Posted on October 16th, 2018 in Dee Why.

Hello Friends,

No lack of energy this morning, but Dee Why’s a complete mess and it didn’t look like anyone was in the water. The MHL’s directional spectrum graphic for 0400 was showing 3 metres of 11 sec from dead north plus a lot of stuff from the SSE (154°) – a perfect recipe for the chaotic conditions captured in the pictures. Not surprisingly given the rain, the water also looks foul (Beachwatch had pollution possible warnings at most beaches yesterday and there’s a 90% chance of more showers today).

The wind was 6-7 kts from the NE at 0700 but looking at the clouds scudding overhead, the prediction of it ramping up to 15-20 kts is entirely plausible. And the NE’r is going to keep hammering us through Thursday. Friday should see it go more NW-NE in the morning before again going NE in the afternoon.

Most of the models show the swell heights gradually drifting down as we get into the weekend and next week looks small but not unsurfably so.

Have a great day everyone!

 

Lots of energy – but chaotic

Weather Situation

A strong high pressure system over the Tasman Sea will remain near stationary for the coming days, generating southeast to northeasterly winds. Meanwhile, a deep coastal trough along the southern Queensland and northern New South Wales coast is generating strong winds in the far north. This coastal trough is expected move further offshore today while the high pressure system remains over the Tasman Sea. Strong northeast winds area expected to develop about the far south today as another trough moves over central New South Wales.

Lightly onshore early

Posted on October 15th, 2018 in Dee Why.

Hello Friends,

Definitely activity along the beaches, but the quality? Not so much. Couldn’t see anyone in the water at Dee Why when I grabbed the snaps a little after 0715. It looks weak, messy and fat. Plus there’s more rain in the mix, so water quality is unlikely to improve.
The MHL data showed 2.2 m of 9 second stuff from the SSE and the NE.
Tide was low at 0650 and is now coming into a 1.5 m high at 1320.There’s a 90% chance of rain and the wind will pick up to 20-25 kts from the NE. The NE swell comnponent should pick up too, leading to the Bureau warning of large and powerful surf conditions.
Outlook is for the NE regime to continue through Wednesday as the combo NE-S swells fluctuate around in the 1-2 metre range. The swell models tell us to expect the wind situation to last through Thursday before finally backing off on Friday morning.
So hang in there, it’ll get better.
Have a top Monday!

Onshore and that’s all

Posted on October 14th, 2018 in Dee Why.

Hello Friends,

Straight onshore from the east at 15-20 kts on a mild, cloudy and showery Sunday morning. As the pictures show, it’s extremely junky but not flat. Set faces are definitely shoulder plus. The latest MHL data tells us that as of 0600 we had 2.4 metres of 13 second swell from the ESE (145°). Water looked pretty ordinary and Beachwatch warns that pollution is possible at most beaches this morning. Ocean temp is sitting on 18C.
The Bureau says we’re in for three days of NE wind and they’ve posted warnings about the surf conditions being dangerous for rock fishers and such for today and tomorrow.
According to some of the swell models, there could be a window of opportunity Wednesday and Thursday morning as the swell persists and the wind backs off.
Here’s hoping!

Options early on Saturday

Posted on October 13th, 2018 in At large.

Hello Friends,

Wind was light and offshore at daybreak and there were little waves too. Size was into the shoulder plus range on the bigger ones, but it seemed to be pretty inconsistent and quality overall was so-so – which is probably why there were very few in the water. Skies were mostly cloudy.

The wind was coming back around to the east by 0700, and the Bureau tells us it’ll build to 15-25 kts before later. If you weren’t back in the carpark by 0800, you missed the best of it I’d say.  FWIW, nexdt tide is a high just before noon.

As of 0400 the MHL buoy was registering 2 metres from the S-SSE at 9 seconds. The Bureau tells us to expect some additional SE component to start mixing in later, causing them to raise a warning about possibly being more powerful than they first appear. Oh, and there’s a 90 percent chance of more showers.

Outlook is for the swell to hold, and maybe even build a little over the next 48 hours. While the wind isn’t expected to back off, it’s predicted to go around to the NE – which could open up a few possibilities in north corners…

The long range models are also looking hopeful for sizable (but wind affected) conditions mid to late week…

Have yourself a great Saturday everyone!

Junky Friday morning

Posted on October 12th, 2018 in At large.

Hello Friends,

Nothing of interest for surfers this morning between Dee Why and North Narrabeen (and every where else no doubt). 10-15 kts of ESE wind going when I checked around 0815. Waves were in the waist to chest high range at Long Reef but smaller everywhere else.

Outlook is for more showers today – and for the weekend.

And, speaking of outlooks, the Goat is back! You’ll find his expert prognostications for the week ahead, right here.

The Goat’s Surf Forecast

Posted on October 11th, 2018 in Surf Reports.

Surf forecast issued Thursday 11 October 2018: Seven day outlook for Sydney:

What kind of weather do you call this!!!?? It’s cold, wet, windy, uninviting, and the surf matches it.

Six weeks of lovely warm to hot weather in Europe and assorted places in between and I come back to this!

Oh well, six whales showed they were happy to see me back… At least, I assume that’s why they were leaping about.

For those keen on getting themselves wet(ter)…

The surf outlook looks overall to be biggish, but messy for the next few days.  Conditions might improve from Monday onwards and still sizeable.

Friday: bit bigger than today.. say around 2, 2+ metres South East but messy

Saturday: uppish end of the 1-2 metre range South East, though the sets might have a little punch, and coming up through the day

Sunday: in the 2-3ish metre range East

Monday: 2-3 metres East North East and maybe a bit bigger on the sets

Tuesday: dittoish

Wednesday: easing back in the 2-3 metre range East North East

Thursday: ditto

Chilly, grey and windy

Posted on October 11th, 2018 in Dee Why.

Hello Friends,

12-16 kts of SE wind to kick off the morning’s beachside activities. More cloudy skies too, and although the swell popped up to 3 metres at 11 seconds from the SSE (158°), it’s not looking too enticing at Dee Why. As of 0830 there didn’t appear to be any people in the water and sets looked to be maybe chest to shoulder high.

Unsurprisingly given the rain, Beachwatch reports that pollution is possible from Collaroy south to Manly (apart from south Curly). They report that water temp is 19C.

Outlook is for the onshores to continue into the weekend, although they are set to swing more to the NE from Saturday and stay that way right through most of next week. So, possibilities maybe in a few north corners, particularly early…

Have a top old Thursday!

Bigger than yesterday, but no cleaner

Weather Situation

Vigorous south to southeast winds have been affecting the waters in association with a cold front that moved across the region yesterday. In the wake of the front, a high pressure system near Tasmania is forecast to extend a ridge along the New South Wales coast. As this high drifts eastwards to the Tasman Sea at the end of the week, winds are expected to tend east to northeast.

Back in grey

Posted on October 10th, 2018 in Dee Why.

Hello Friends,

20 kts of southerly under dark grey skies as Wednesday rolled into view. The wind is beating up the surface conditions at Dee Why and the swell is still small and weak (it was 1.6 metres at 5 seconds from the south as of 0600). The Bureau tells us to expect it to increase across the day but the wind’ll blow hard from the south to SE for at least the next three days. Plus there’s near certainty of showers today. Missable in a word.

Swell’s expected to peak tomorrow but wind’s also set to be more SE, so my hopes are modest. And the long range outlook is for generally onshore conditions into next week. So, we’ll be looking to the corners for now.

Have a great day everyone!

Not enough energy to make the point work

Weather Situation

A trough will move up the north coast today while a cold front to its south will follow in its steps. The trough will bring a south to southeasterly change to the north coast, while the front will strengthen these south to southeasterly winds. Both features will clear the far north coast early tomorrow. In their wake, a high pressure system south of the Bight is forecast to extend a ridge along the New South Wales Coast. As this high drifts eastward to the Tasman Sea toward the end of the week, winds are expected to tend east to northeasterly.

Sunny skies

Posted on October 9th, 2018 in Dee Why.

Hello Friends,

A change from the recent rainy conditions as this morning sees sunny conditions with a light westerly breeze. Sadly the swell has dialled back at Dee Why. At 0500 the MHL buoy was seeing 1.2 m from the ESE (127°) at 10 seconds. There might be a little more energy showing at better exposed stretches but where Dee Why’s concerned it’s too small for the poiint and the beachy wasn’t looking too populated either. Tide hits a 1.7 m high at 0910 and then heads back to low at 1515.

Weather should start to cloud up later and there’s a 20% chance of rain later. The showers return tomorrow along with the southerlies. And the swell should start to come back up during the morning. Expectations for a major south swell event have changed pretty dramatically downward from predictions just a day or two ago. The latest projections are calling for a couple of metres from the south in the 9-10 second range from Thursday into next week. It looks as though wind will be steadily onshore during the period in question – unfortunately.

Ah well, at least there’s the hope of some scrappy stuff for the extra keen.

 

Fading but still little lines coming in

Weather Situation

A weak low pressure system off the Illawarra coast will gradually move southeast away from New South Wales today. At the same time, a strong high pressure system over the Bight is expected to push a ridge along the south coast later today, then along the north coast tomorrow. As a result, winds will shift south to southeasterly along whole coast over the next day or two. Winds are forecast to tend east to southeasterly on Thursday and Friday as the high drifts from the Bight to the Tasman Sea.
