Dripping with rain…

Published by at 6:22 am under Surf reports

Hello Friends,

It’s great to have the rain, but gee, it’d be nice if Huey could be bothered to organise some waves as well.  As I write this, the Sydney radar picture is showing a fair amount of shower activity lined up offshore and headed in the general direction of the northern beaches.  The Bureau is calling for a few showers, possibly heavy at times. Oh, and then there’s the wind. Right now it’s SSE and anywhere from 10-20 kts along the coastline of Sydney.

The wave situation is somewhat less than ordinary. We have a very weak and tiny SSE windswell showing on the MHL Sydney buoy. To put some numbers on it, the average height is around a metre and they’re around 6 seconds apart. Not a recipe for surf at all. And it would appear that these conditions prevail from Eden to the Tweed.

Outlook for the surf week ahead in the Sydney region is less than inspiring. A couple of the models are showing a influx of small longer period east swell overnight and into tomorrow morning. Since we’re also supposed to have a break from the rain on Sunday, it might mean there will be the odd catchable one and spots with good exposure to east swell. After that though it looks like more small, short period stuff for as far ahead as the models look. Ah well, you never know, Huey could change his mind…

Have yourself a top old Saturday!
