Eastern Tasmania Forecast by Craig Brokensha (issued Friday 20th November)

Best Days: No decent days.


Tiny levels of NE windswell developed late yesterday and has come in at 1ft+ or so across the coast this morning with S'ly winds.

This weekend and Monday (Dec 21 - 23)

A weak change moving up the coast today won't be strong enough to generate any meaningful S'ly swell heading into tomorrow, but moving into Sunday a strong northerly ridge will aim a fetch of strengthen NE winds into us.

This should kick up a stormy 2-3ft of NE windswell across north-east facing beaches later Sunday. Unfortunately conditions will be poor with a fresh to strong NE breeze. By Monday the swell will ease rapidly as a change moves through, with north-east facing beaches expected to drop from 1-2ft.

Longer term (Dec 24 onwards)

Unfortunately there's nothing major on the cards for the longer term outlook so try and make the most of Sunday afternoon's junky NE windswell if you have to get wet.
