Swells from almost every direction over the next week and a half, most of them very good too - and with good conditions.

We’ve got a complex series of large south swells for the first half of next week. They’ll originate from a deep Tasman Low that’s expected to display several embedded low/fronts wrapping around its western flank, all of which will be working on a large pre-existing sea state.

A vigorous stream of fronts are crossing the SE corner of the country, and they'll be the source of persistent south swells throughout the next few days.

Looks like a tricky Saturday of waves.

However, we have a slightly better swell source for the same period, and with the direction holding from the E/NE it’ll provide a more uniform size distribution across the region.

We’ve got an active phase of the Long Wave Trough on approach. Unfortunately, it’s expected to peak too far to the west, which will steer Southern Ocean swell generating systems away from our southern swell window.

The final low/front this current series pushed through eastern Bass Strait this morning. It’s still not in an ideal region for swell generation but it will maintain small southerly swells through the next few days.
