12 Feb 08: little glassy things at Dee Why

Hello Friends,

As expected, the windswell that was pushing into Sydney’s beaches yesterday has dropped off sharply overnight. But it isn’t actually flat. Dee Why was showing some waist high and rideable little things – and it was glassy. Swell at sea is currently out of the SE at about a metre at 8 seconds. The Bureau says that our wind will push up through the day to be be around 15-20 kts from the N-NE by this afternoon. Tide will be high late this morning, so it’s a case of the earlier you can get in, the better.

There are some interesting points to the NSW marine forecast this morning. We have a trough up off the north coast that the Bureau reckons could turn into a low overnight and then move away to the east. Meanwhile, a cold front off to the south will start its run up the coast.

Wednesday looks like being southerly all up and down the NSW coast. Here in Sydney the Bureau says we can expect it to build to 25-33 kts and that of course will push the swell up as the day goes along. It’s set to be showery through Thursday, and generally southerly through Friday arvo.

Looking ahead, the forecast models are currently showing us having a steady supply of 2-3 metre 8-9 sec south windswell along most of the NSW coast for pretty much the next week. The usual caveats apply of course!

Have yourself a terrific Tuesday!
