NE and high tide not the combo for Dee Why

Posted on December 9th, 2018 in Dee Why.

Only a slight line up toward No Mans at 0854

Dee Why fat and full at 0855

Hello Friends,

As of 0900 the wind was coming from the NNE at 7-10 kts under sunny skies as we head to a coastal high of 27. The 0600 MHL buoy data showed 1.75 metres of 8-sec NE wind swell. Tide was coming into a deep 1.8 m high at 1015. Despite the NE wind, water’s clicked up a notch to 20C according to Beachwatch.

Despite the otherwise attractive conditions, Dee Why wasn’t luring many surfers at all. It looked very fat, full and weak when I grabbed the pics via my Heath Robinson-esque camera rig for one-armed photographers. I’d say you’d be doing well to catch something in the knee to waist high range. The fact that hardly anyone’s trying, speaks volumes. If you’re keen, you’ll be looking elsewhere for a wave (maybe Northy or Curly).

Outlook for the coming week remains decidely so-so. All the models are showing the same combo of short period N-NE wind bump for the next 7 days. Mornings will be the best shot.

Have a great Sunday everyone!

 

Weather Situation

A high over the Tasman Sea and a trough approaching from the west are directing fresh to strong north to northeasterly winds over New South Wales waters during this weekend. A weak short-lived southerly change will affect far southern waters today, before another southerly change associated with the trough is forecast to move up the southern half of the coast on Monday, where it is expected to stall and weaken during Tuesday. Come Wednesday the high over the Tasman Sea will extend another ridge across the coast.

Forecast for Sunday until midnight

Quiet at no mans

Tiny waves at DY

Hello Friends,
Not terribly impressive surfwise for Saturday morning. As of 0700 wind was out of the north at 9-13 kts and the MHL buoy’s latest update showed 2 metres of 7 sec NE wind bump. Tide was coming into a swampy 1.8 metre high at 0940.  Today’s high is set to be 28 under sunny skies. Beachwatch is calling the water 19C with all beaches reporting in as clean.

It’s not totally flat but the nearest thing to a wave will be at lower tide – when the wind will be into it. Obviously given the short period and NE direction, the more exposed the spot is to the energy, the better. I reckon waist to chest (in the onshore) is a reasonable hope for this afternoon.

Tomorrow should see a combo south and NE swell situation, but the wind will be about the same as today, so maybe a bit bigger, but you’ll have to love messy onshore conditions. Oh, and the high tide won’t help too much.

The rest of the week isn’t too exciting. And, sad to say, none of the very long range predictions are overly hopeful. Typical summer conditions in other words.

Have a great Saturday everyone!

Weather Situation

A high over the Tasman Sea and a trough approaching from the west will direct fresh to strong north to northeasterly winds over New South Wales waters today and through the weekend.

DY at 0745 looking tiny


Hello Friends,
Nice morning out there, but the waves are close to non-existant. The MHL buoy was seeing 1.2 metres of 5 second NE bump at 0400. As the picture indicates, there’s not much of anything at Dee Why. Tide is coming into a swampy 1.8 m at 0900 – which isn’t helping either. We’ve got a standard summer day coming up with a high around 26 and afternoon NEr of 20-25 kts.
Outlook you ask? Well it’s Friday so that means the ever-reliable Goat has rolled out a fresh take on the surf week to come.
Have a great Friday!

Heat coming and only tiny waves

Posted on December 2nd, 2018 in Dee Why.

Too small to attract any hopeculs at No Mans 0740

The Sunday crew waiting for a set

Hello Friends,

We’re heading for a high of 35 today, so you’d hope there’d be waves of some sort. There are, but it’s small. At 0745 Dee Why looked to be in the waist high range on sets. No one was at the point and nor could I see anyone up the beach at No Mans. The MHL buoy report from 0500 showed 1.3 metres of 10-sec bump from 132-166°. Tide is dropping to low at 1115 and will be back to a 1.5 m high at 1720. Ocean temp is still sitting on 19.

Outlook for the coming week has not improved over yesterday’s less than exciting prognostications. The most hopeful projections are still indicating a small uptick midweek, but at best it’ll only be about today’s intensity.

It’s the 25th Ocean Care Day at Manly’s South Steyne and as usual, Surfrider Foundation will have a presence. I’m headed down there later, so stop by and say hi.

Have a great Sunday everyone.

From the BoM…

Weather Situation

A high pressure ridge over the western Tasman Sea and a cold front approaching from the west are directing north to northeasterly winds along the New South Wales coast. The cold front will bring a vigorous southerly change to the far south coast late this morning, with the change extending through central parts during the afternoon and evening, and reaching the Queensland border overnight. A brief return to northeasterly winds on Monday will precede a second southerly change on Tuesday.

Home again and there are still waves this morning

Posted on November 30th, 2018 in Dee Why.

Hello Friends,
Good to be back in Sydney once more. Good too to see there’s some energy around. As the pictures show, the surface conditions at 0720 were not looking exceptionally inviting. Interestingly, despite the heavy rain a couple of days ago, Beachwatch is calling most spots clean. The exceptions were at Birdwood lagoon, North Curly and Queenscliff. I was expecting warmer water after a month away though. Apparently it’s still on 19C. Aso of 0500 the MHL buoy off Sydney was picking up activity from the north and SSE. The latter is dominating with swell heights at 2.7 metres from 154-162°. Tide is low at 0955 and then back to a deepish 1.6m high at 1505. Should be a mild 23 today with a 40% chance of a light shower this afternoon. At report writing time, wind was light westerly, but that should swing more SW soon and then go onshore this afternoon.
Looking at where the crowd was sitting at Dee Why, I’d say set wave faces will be overhead to maybe even 1.5x on the bombs.

And the outlook? Well, the ever reliable Goat has rolled out his call for the coming week and I commend it to you.
Have a great Friday everyone!

 

Weather Situation

A low pressure system in the Tasman Sea has moved well east of the coast. A high pressure ridge will extend across New South Wales today, and shift into the Tasman Sea on Saturday with winds gradually tending north to northeasterly. The next southerly change is expected along the southern half of the coast during Sunday, and extend along northern parts during Monday. Later Monday another southerly change is expected along the far southern coast.

0625 high tide bumps for the keen at Dee Why beach

Hello Friends,

Another grey morning with lumpy but catchable waist plus sets at Dee Why. Sorry about the blurry picture, but I was using a 40 year old lens handheld in low light, so, well anyway. At least you can sort of make out the little A-frame at Kiddies. So, not great quality, but at least they can be caught and fun can be had.

The MHL buoy was seeing 1.8 m from the SSE at 9 seconds apart. Wind at North Head as of 0600 was coming from the WSW at 6-9 kts but it will drift around to the easterly quarters as the day goes along. First tide of the day is a deep 1.7 m high at 0920. Despite the overcast conditions, there wasn’t much in the way of percipitation showing on the radar early and the Bureau doesn’t expect anything more than the odd sprinkle.

Your correspondent is off to the northern hemisphere in a few hours. Postcards to follow in due course.

South to southeast winds will begin to tend northeast today as a high pressure system moves over the western Tasman Sea. A cold front, currently over the Southern Ocean to the west of Tasmania, will bring another southerly change on Friday.

Windy, grey and small again

Posted on October 24th, 2018 in Dee Why.

Hello Friends,

Turned southerly last night and this morning sees us back to heavily overcast skies and 15-25 kts of S-SSW wind. Out at sea the swell height zipped up to 2 metres as the change came through. But as of 0300 it was only 7 seconds apart. So, choppy and tiny.

The gutless wind affected tininess doesn’t look likely to change across the day unfortunately. And near term prospects according to the models aren’t very interesting either. Tomorrow looks sad, but Friday the cloud should break up, the winds should go offshore for the dawn patrol and there might possibly even be a little tiny something at spots that like east wind bump. I’m thinking ankle to knee with the odd waist if it works out. Beyond that a couple of the models are predicting slightly more interesting prospects for Mon-Tue of next week.

Not sure if I’ll be in a position to file a report tomorrow as I’ll be heading to the airport for my trip to California.

Have yourself a great day everyone!

Back to grey and tiny conditions

 

No real activity at the point or Kiddies as ot 0625

 

 

 

Weather Situation

Northeasterly winds are expected along the north coast ahead of an approaching cold front, which has brought a southerly change to southern and central waters overnight and will reach the north coast today. Winds will begin to turn northeasterly again during Thursday, as a high pressure system moves from the Bight to the Tasman Sea in the wake of the front. A second cold front is expected to bring another southerly change on Friday.

Sunny morning, but waves? You want waves too?

Posted on October 23rd, 2018 in Dee Why.

Hello Friends,
Haven’t seen a clear morning like this one for awhile. Wind is light too. Unfortunately, as the pictures show, there’s no real sign of surf at Dee Why.
The MHL buoy report from 0400 showed a metre of 9-second bump from the east. As of 0715, wind was coming from the NNW at 4-6 kts. First tide of the daylight hours is the 1.5 m high at 0810. It’s back to a 0.4 m low at 1415. We’re headed to a high of 26. Beachwatch reports water temp is up a touch to 19C.
Outlook is for surf intensity to stay around the current marginal to near flat level for most places for the rest of the week. The wind will pick up again tomorrow from the northern quarters and although the Bureau says the swell will pick up, the models are showing only short period stuff, so I’m not overly hopeful. Oh, and we’ll be back to cloudy conditions again. Beyond that, the long range modelling for our region doesn’t look too exciting. Hope the predicitions prove unduly pessimistic. By then I’ll be sharing my thoughts on matters surfin’ from the other side of the planet as I spend most of November in California.

Have a top old day and good luck wave hunting!

 

Weather Situation

Southeast to northeasterly winds will turn northeasterly and freshen as a cold front approaches from the west. This front is forecast to bring a southerly change to southern waters later today and the remainder of the coast on Wednesday. Winds will begin to turn northeasterly again during Thursday, as a high pressure system moves from the Bight to the Tasman Sea in the wake of the front.

Another grey and blustery one

Posted on October 21st, 2018 in Dee Why.

Hello Friends,

15-20 kts of SSW wind and a shade under 2 metres of 6-sec S-SSW bump showing at North Head and out at sea. Conditions at Dee Why, unsurprisingly, looked weak, small and messy. I couldn’t see anyone in the water either.

A day for doing other things I’d say because it’s unlikely there’ll be any positive change to conditions according to the Bureau.

Prospects for tomorrow don’t look too much better, although the weather could be a little nicer in the afternoon. I’m not seeing much of interest for the rrest of the week in this morning’s batch of swell models. Tuesday morning looks about the best prospect right now thanks to a call for brief moderation in the wind. But the waves are likely to be short period and therefore gutless.

Your correspondent will be heading off to the Northern hemisphere again from Thursday. So, expect the usual stream of postcards from Cali and thoughts on what the models show for Sydney. If the iron law of ‘you really missed it’ holds, the waves will get better in Sydney while I’m away. 🙂

Go well with your Sunday!

Weather Situation

A slow-moving high pressure system over the Tasman Sea is directing a humid northeasterly airstream over the New South Wales coast, while a trough with an associated southerly change extends northwards. The trough is expected to slow and stagnate on the lower Mid North coast today before weakening on Monday with a return to northeasterlies along the whole coast. The next southerly change is expected later on Tuesday in the south.

Murky and minor

Posted on October 18th, 2018 in Dee Why.

Hello Friends,

Wind was coming lightly from the NNE at 0730 while skies were heavily overcast. We can expect the wind to pick up later and by this afternoon it should be 15-20 kts. At 0500 the MHL buoy off Sydney was seeing 2 metre of 9-sec coming from both the NE and SSE. Unfortunately, it didn’t seem to be adding up to much at Dee Why when I grabbed the snaps around 0720. I couldn’t see anyone in the water, which isn’t surprising given the weak, small and confused conditions.

The Bureau says it’ll get to a summery 24° and there’s a 90% chance of rainfall. Interestingly, the UV levels are creeping up and despite the cloud, it’ll be 8 (very high) on the scale. Ocean’s still 18C according to beachwatch – which also tells us apart from the lagoon exits at Northy, Long Reef and Curl Curl, water quality at all beaches is okay.

Being Thursday, I shall await the Goat’s prognostications with interest. From my reading of the runes, it looks like we’re near the peak of the energy levels for the next week…

Have a great day everyone!
