Eastern Tasmania Forecast by Craig Brokensha (issued Monday 24th March)
Best Days: Tuesday morning, Thursday in northern corners and south swell magnets, Friday morning
A moderate increase in S/SE windswell was seen Saturday but conditions were average with associated S'ly winds.
Sunday offered small clean leftovers to 1-2ft or so, while today a long-range and super inconsistent E/NE groundswell has filled in from Tropical Cyclone Mike that developed in the Cook Islands region last week. This came in at 2ft this morning but should of pulsed a little bigger this afternoon.
This week (Mar 24 -28)
Today's swell will ease off slowly through tomorrow but there should still be inconsistent 2ft sets across open beaches. Winds are a little dicey and may be lingering onshore but will most likely be variable across the coast.
Into the the rest of the week be should see a mix of new S'ly groundswell and building NE windswell Thursday although with terrible onshore N/NE winds. South swell magnets will be the go to maximise the wind and inconsistent S'ly swell which should reach 2ft to occasionally 3ft.
The windswell will fade through Friday but winds will be offshore early, so this will be the best time to surf over this week, while into the weekend there's nothing major on the cards besides small levels of NE windswell.
This weekend onwards (Mar 29 onwards)
As touched on above, small levels of NE windswell will pad out the weekend with nothing major expected into the following week. We'll review this Wednesday though so check back for an update then.
Just wondering if you are still going to be doing Tassie forecasts or have we dropped off the radar?
Our East coast is the most difficult to forecast.
Been real busy working up the coast the past few weeks. Will be back on track Wednesday though.
Thanks for your patience.
