Some little waves

Hello Friends,

Clouding up this morning but there was a pretty sunrise to get things started. There are some little waves around as well, but they look little different than yesterday’s offerings. Indeed, according to the MHL data, we’re looking at the much the same settings, ie a touch under 2 metres at 9 seconds from the south. Right now the winds are light and out of the SW.

The Bureau’s forecast says those southwest winds will swing SE this morning, get up to 18-23 kts and then fade back to 10-15kts from the E-SE by dusk. They also reckon that the swell will push up this morning and get into the 2.5 – 3 metre range.

As of the latest set of readings from the MHL buoy, I can’t see any pulse showing on the Pt Kembla or Batemans Bay buoys. Eden started bumping up around midnight as its average period went from 9 to 11 seconds. All things being equal, that should mean we get a few forerunner this morning and then the bulk of the pulse arriving mid afternoon (after the wind’s gone SE of course).

Showers are set to develop this morning, so looks to me as though you’ll need to be pretty keen…

Have yourself a top old day!
