oh, it’s still nearly level

Published by at 6:58 am under Surf reports

Hello Friends,

Small to nearly flat again where Dee Why’s concerned.  There were a few bods getting wet this morning down at kiddies, but the size was just about as close to minimal as you can get. The MHL buoy off Sydney is currently reporting swell height at around a metre from the NE at a  floppy 6 seconds apart. If you find anything above knee high, I reckon you’re going well!

Sydney’s set to be mainly fine today and warm with it (27 on the coast to 30 inland). There might be some thunderstorms this afternoon.  The seaside is due to have NW-NE wind of 10-15 kts ahead of a similar strength SE change tonight. Tomorrow should see those SE winds in on top of a small, short period SE windswell.

The surf outlook for the remainder of the work week where Sydney’s concerned is  not too terrific. But, the models are showing some hopeful signs for something into the surfable range for the weekend (10s @ 2metres from the ESE, if they are to be belived). And then beyond that, at least one of the longest range forecasts is showing a substantial fetch zone forming NE of NZ and pushing toward the east coast. It’s pretty reasonable looking on the models, but as we all know, a lot can change in a week where Huey’s concerned. And the models show the high seas zone pretty far north, so, I’m not making any bookings just yet.

Meanwhile, as I mentioned yesterday, California’s looking like getting pretty intense in the next 48 hours. It’s 7 metres up near the Cali-Oregon border. The huge system creating these conditions is rivalled in size by another over in the Atlantic and it looks to me as though the western Eurpoean surf zones will be copping similar, if possibly bigger conditions a day or so after the swell has peaked in the western US. Gee world swell maps are fun!

Go well with your day, wherever you may find yourself on this planet of ours.
