Eastern Tasmania Forecast by Craig Brokensha (issued Monday 23rd November)

Best Days: Friday and Saturday mornings at north-east swell magnets


The weekend started off slow, but heading into yesterday fresh levels of NE windswell started to build across the coast. This offered fun onshore peaks into the afternoon before dropping back to 2ft this morning with winds swinging offshore. The swell should of eased a touch this afternoon and winds have since gone around to the S'th.

This week (Dec 24 - 27)

Today's NE windswell will be gone by tomorrow morning, with a weak S'ly windswell not expected to offer much size in the wake of this afternoon's weak change.

Unfortunately there's nothing too major on the cards for us besides small levels of NE windswell from Thursday through Saturday. Size wise, we're not likely to see much above 2ft at north-east facing beaches, with the most size seen on Friday and Saturday.

This weekend (Dec 28 – 29)

A strong S'ly change on Sunday may create a moderate increase in S'ly swell later in the day, but this will be short-lived and ease rapidly through Monday.

Longer term there's still nothing major on the cards besides building levels of NE windswell later into next week. We'll review this again on Wednesday though.
