Southern Tasmania Forecast (issued Monday 27th January)

Best Days: Thursday, Friday morning, Saturday morning


A strong increase in SW groundswell was seen on Saturday to 3ft across Clifton with early W'ly winds. The swell held unexpectedly well into Sunday with more favourable winds ahead of a drop into the afternoon.

Today, tiny 1-1.5ft waves were breaking across Clifton with all day offshores.

This week (Jan 28 - 31)

The storm track through this week will be aimed a little too high than ideal for us generating plenty of W/SW groundswell but to no major size (pictured right).

The first pulse of swell is expected to fill in Wednesday afternoon ahead of another pulse Thursday afternoon.

Size wise, we're probably not looking at anything above an inconsistent 1-2ft across Clifton. Winds look best on Thursday for more exposed spots and from the N'th.

This weekend (Feb 1 onwards)

Another pulse of W/SW groundswell is due Saturday to a similar 1-2ft across Clifton, while longer term, small to tiny pulses of W/SW swell are due to continue.
