Rain lifting today?

Published by at 7:07 am under Surf reports

Hello Friends,

From the radar, it looks as though showers are contracting south from Sydney this morning. The Bureau says there’s a chance of afternoon thunderstorms as we head to 24 for the day’s high.

Surf situation isn’t too good. Thanks to all the rain (we had a good 100mm plus up in our part of the Dee Why catchment), the water looks ‘orrible. It’d want to be a lot better than it is to tempt me to challenge my immune system in that swill.

To put numbers on it, the MHL buoy is currently showing 8 sec period ENE windswell of about 2 metres. The wind is light N/NE now and due to fade slightly to 10-20 kts before going around to the S/SW.

The swell forecast models continue to bounce around. Right now they show another 36-48 hours of this ENE windswell before a south change comes through on Thursday and drops a load of short period 2-3 metre stuff on our region. Thereafter it looks less interesting as swell generating zones for the east coast go pretty quiet. Mind you, they’ve been so erratic lately that who knows what  we’ll be looking at in a few days… but that’s Huey for ya.

Have a top old day with whatever it is you’ve got on!
