Hello Friends,

Still the odd shower around as Sunday got started. But the wind seems to have backed off and the swell has dropped dramatically overnight. So, there are now some people in the water at Dee Why chasing the odd attractive section amongst the heaving craziness. The water looks filthy though (hardly surprising, up the top of the catchment where I live, we’ve had nearly 100mm of rain from the storm).

The MHL buoy is showing 3-5 metres of SSE swell at about 10s, so the waves are still big and powerful. It would still be relatively easy to get yourself into real trouble at many places along the coast.

As I write this, the wind reports are showing around 10-20 kts of W to WSW winds at most stations along the Newcastle to Wollongong stretch of the east coast. The Bureau’s call is still for easing southerlies, so looks like the weather systems might be moving a bit more quickly than expected.

Outlook for the week ahead isn’t too bad surf wise. With luck this swell will fade but not go too small to surf and then toward next weekend start to build up again as what looks on at least one model to be a broad area of fetch from the west coast of NZ’s south Island right across to our se coast.

It would appear that winter has finally arrived.

Go well with your day!
