Longy

Hello Friends,

Back to rainy and windy for the beaches of Sydney this morning – and a lot of other places too. Swell has, as expected, gone pear shaped. It’s 2-3 metres out on the bounding main, but the period is only 6 seconds, so surf quality is unlikely to be stellar anywhere in our region. I had a look at Long Reef because it’s out of the wind, but while there are waves, you’d want to be very keen given the cool temps, intermittent rain and generally weak and junky conditions.

But, as all you weather watchers will know, things are a-brewing in the Tasman as East Coast Low number four starts to spin up. Here’s the Bureau’s marine forecast summary: “Complex low to develop off NSW coast today, intensify tonight and move towards south coast. Deep, complex low to lie near NSW southern coast Wednesday and Thursday, then move slowly to southeast.”

The swell models are still showing the east south east energy pulsing up to a peak tomorrow. It should be biggest then, but it’ll be WNW 25-33 kts with it, so although the swell direction is likely to be out of the SSE to SE, you’ll be hunting for some protection I would’ve thought. The showers will still be around, but for Sydney anyway, they shouldn’t be too much of a factor.

Gotta jam, will try to grab a picture or two for you soon…

Go well with your day!
