Eastern Tasmania Forecast by Craig Brokensha (issued Friday 15th November)

Best Days: Tuesday afternoon, early Wednesday


Wednesday's large swell eased considerably overnight and dropped from a fun clean 3ft yesterday morning. Today the swell is back to a smaller 1-2ft with a weak S'ly swell also in the mix. Both swells should of faded this afternoon leaving tiny waves across the coast.

This weekend (Nov 16-17)

There's no swell due over the weekend so you'll have to plan on keeping yourself busy with other activities.

Early next week (Nov 18-20)

Next week will start off slow but a building NE windswell is expected through Tuesday before peaking overnight and easing Wednesday. This will be related to a surface trough in the Tasman Sea squeezing a high towards New Zealand with a kick to 2ft+ expected later in the day Tuesday before easing from 2-3ft early Wednesday.

Into Wednesday though a trough will move across us with the NE swell expected to drop rapidly as a S'ly windswell takes its place.

Longer Term (Nov 21 onwards)

The models are divergent on the outlook for the second half of the week as they're having trouble trying to resolve a couple of surface troughs in the Tasman Sea. We'll provide another update on this next Monday.
