Victoria Forecast (issued Wednesday 27th November)

Best Days: Sunday morning at super exposed spots


Monday's SE windswell dropped right back overnight into Tuesday as winds eased and swung light NE leaving tiny clean waves east of Melbourne and peaky average waves across the Surf Coast.

This morning the SE swell has faded further and with no new groundswell from the SW, most of the state is flat or near flat.

This week (Nov 27-29)

Give the coast a miss tomorrow as the swell will remain tiny and winds will go westerly.

A fresh increase in swell is due Friday but it will be low quality S/SW windswell generated as a strong surface trough moves across us. Winds will accordingly be strong but easing from the S/SW creating poor conditions.

This weekend onwards (Nov 30 onwards)

Friday's S/SW windswell will ease Saturday and winds will remain average from the S/SE, but by Sunday winds should swing offshore from the N/NE but we'll be back to small to tiny and weak waves best suited to super exposed spots.

We should finally see a more favourable weather pattern forming into later next week as a series of cold fronts push in from the west under the country. We're likely to see a medium sized W/SW swell for later in the week with W'ly winds but check back Friday for the latest on this.

Craig can you have a look into your crystal ball to see when there maybe a day with some decent waves.
the weather for a surf has been crap a week of onshore winds and when the wind has swung to a northerly there has been no swell at all. I have never seen the beaches ever with not even a ripple.
i.e Gunna to portsea.
your forecast's are a great read.

Sorry to say Old-Grey but there's no decent waves in the making at all really over the next couple of weeks. Small windows are Sunday morning, but swell will be weak, and then Wednesday morning for a distant and long-range W/SW groundswell with early offshores ahead of an arvo change.

Slim pickings!
