Hello Friends,

Not too fascinating for surfing in Sydney this morning. Well, at least not where Dee Why’s concerned.  I’d definitely be crossing it off my list for today. Wind is a favourable light westerly, but there is next to nothing for it to work with as the swell is averaging about a metre at sea at a paltry 6 seconds. The wind is set to start out at 15-25 kts  from the W/NW and then to swing to the SW at 20-30 kts. There’s even a chance of thunderstorms.

The Bureau is expecting a low  to continue forming off the south coast and for it to move slowly eastwards over the next 24 hours or so. But, from the models and the Bureau’s own reckoning, it seems unlikely to give us anything lasting. Right now the call is for the Sydney region to get a little south pulse into the two metre range, but that low is pretty close, so the swell doesn’t look like lasting long, nor does it appear the period will get up into the juicy range (the call is for 8 seconds).

My guess is that we’ve got another week of marginal conditions ahead of us in the Sydney region. Pretty typical for springtime.

Go well with your day!
