Grey and weak looking again…

Hello Friends,

Saturday started out murkily in Sydney. Grey skies, near calm winds, and, it has to be said right up front, near calm seas.

Overnight, Huey’s decided to flip the switch to “off”. Yesterday’s aneamic 8 sec SE windswell, has been reduced to a barely flickering 6 sec period NE windswell. There was a chap on a stand up paddle board catching a few ankle to knee high set waves at Dee Why this morning, so there should be something similar at those beaches with better exposure to the NE.

I’m with the Goat in that I cannot see any reason to think we’ll have an improvement upon these very tiny NE conditions for the next couple days. Indeed, if the models are to be believed, we’re looking at tiny, short period conditions in the Sydney region into next weekend.

However… the very long range models are still showing some interesting developments spinning up above NZ. One of these models is showing an intense and broad area of generally east-flowing swell. If it pans out, there could be some serious size toward the middle of next week up along the Queensland surf zones and perhaps down as far as the Hunter. I’m a bit wary about hoping for something in the Sydney reigon, but given the size of the fetch field showing on those charts, it certainly isn’t beyond the realms of possibility that we too could be seeing some interesting. Good to have something to hope for…
