South East Queensland and Northern New South Wales Surf Forecast by Ben Matson (issued Friday 14th February)

Best Days: No great days.

Recap: Hardly any surf over the last few days, with most beaches seeing weak lines of a foot or less.

This weekend (Feb 15-16)

Don’t even bother with the surf this weekend. We’re not expecting any new swell of note anywhere in SE Qld or Northern NSW, and N’ly winds will become fresh to strong at times both Saturday and Sunday. These winds will whip up a peaky local swell but beaches facing NE will see the most size and they’ll generally be quite wind affected. Really not worth your time, money or effort.

Next week (Feb 17-21 onwards)

A trough will push off the southern NSW coast on Saturday, forming two lows in the Tasman Sea - a primary low east of Tasmania, and a small embedded low offshore from about Seal Rocks on Sunday night. This will drive a gusty southerly change across the Mid North and Northern NSW coast early Monday morning, reaching the Qld/NSW border on Monday afternoon.

This change will generate a southerly windswell for exposed beaches but no great size is expected from it, especially in SE Qld (due to its direction) - and winds will be gusty from the S/SE at the same time, so conditions will be poor (there won’t be enough size for anything worthwhile on the protected points). 

The primary low responsible for this change is expected to track rapidly south-east after forming in the southern Tasman Sea, dragging the northern low away from the coast at the same time. This will reduce the size and longevity of any swell generated on Monday. As such, Tuesday will see easing low quality short range S/SE swells across open beaches with light winds tending NE as a new high builds in the Tasman Sea.  

On Wednesday, we may start to see the arrival of a small trade swell, generated by a deepening trough of low pressure well south of Fiji over the weekend. No great strength is expected within this fetch so at this stage we can expect generally small surf from this source (inconsistent ~2ft+)

Also on Wednesday - it looks like we’ll see a repeat of our weekend’s weather pattern, with an approaching trough from the west spinning up a low off the South Coast during the day. This should give rise to a small peaky NE windswell Wednesday ahead of a building S’ly swell sometime later Thursday or maybe Friday.

In fact, the latest model guidance suggests the system developing in the Tasman Sea mid-next week will be significantly stronger than what we’re expecting this weekend, and could occupy the region for a day or two. Such a scenario would give rise to a large south swell across the entire NSW Coast (peaking around Friday/Saturday in Northern NSW) however as is always the case with a swell with any southerly component in it, expect much smaller waves north of Point Danger. Let’s just pencil in the prospects of an active Tasman Sea later next week with a view of something worthwhile next weekend, and review the specifics on Monday.

Long range (Feb 22 onwards)

At the moment, next weekend will probably be near to the peak of the aforementioned south swell, or more likely on there backside of this event. Beyond that there’s nothing of any interest standing out in the long range charts.

FFS, we're 7/8ths the way through summer and I can count on one hand the amount of good surf days we've had. This come awfully close to one of the worst summers (swell wise) in a damn damn long time.

Not feeling so confident of this a good start to autumn (Sydney) Hope I'm wrong. my tracking shows that early May will be the first consistent swells to kick in for this season. Some sneakers always get through but the season is pushing later which no doubt will see the late season winter torn apart by northerlies that happen from sept.

I will pick however, the first weekend of May ( Sydney) as a good solid swell. Give or take a day ; )

Which ocean basin Don? Will they generate swell for any coast? 

No need for specifics (ie what the quality of the resulting surf might be), but a long range call for a 'late season cyclone" anywhere in the Australasian region is a little broad. Kinda like a call for late season snowfall in in the Australian Alps.

Nah, I certainly don't expect that. However, it does pose the question - how relevant is a TC forecast at long range? Will it have any effect on a region's surf potential around that time? If so, how can the boundaries be tightened?

Relevant to what? I never said anything about swell from it. Just that my theory of the seasons getting later points to an active late cyclone season (on the east coast) in my opinion. But until April/May, we may as well not over-analyse my hunch.

thermalben commented Thursday, 1 May 2014 at 5:49am

Don, over the last six weeks (off the top of my head) we've had two swells in the 8-10ft range and a whole bunch of 4-6ft days as well. So the first weekend of May wasn't when "the first consistent swells kicked in for this season".

Would have been nice for Joaske to discuss the science behind the prediction.. but as he simply said "mangoes" I presumed it to be a random guess. The line "I will pick however, the first weekend of May (Sydney) as a good solid swell" is a pretty safe bet in any given year.

Also, it's a little premature for Joaske to be self-congratulating the prediction - firstly, this weekend's swell event hasn't arrived (so we can't evaluate it) and secondly, the claim was made in reference to the broader autumn period (with May being the last month of the period). Who knows - perhaps he'll be right and we'll see a dozen ten foot swells over the next four weeks. But I'm doubtful.

joakse commented Friday, 2 May 2014 at 6:21pm

Ok ben I was a bit tongue in cheek as others earlier scoffed at my predictions so I ran with mangoes. There are still days of northly winds blowing on this coast...little further north. By consistent swell I was really referring to a change of seasons this weekend and some consistently cooler weather and offshore. This weekend is it. Not to be too self congratulating but this was over 2 months out and is pretty spot on, granted early may is a sure bet though. Still I did pick the date and say significant swell event compared to days before and after for Sydney. If I had said 4/5th would there be more kudos? Not that I care. Don no chance of early arrival. Science behind it is seasonal patterns tracked over the last two years. I have a whiteboard full of dates that were pretty accurate last year, but really prefer to surf alone so....should add I have no idea if it a really long fluke but a correlation seems to exist in my data. So patterns more than science, which I agree, makes little sense but has really impressive accuracy.

joaske, you write, "Not feeling so confident of this a good start to autumn (Sydney) Hope I'm wrong. my tracking shows that early May will be the first consistent swells to kick in for this season"......

You wrote that in mid feb..... So, if written in mid feb, and "this season",and "autumn"are quoted, you are already wrong....... You wrote it in summer, mate..... Wasn't even autumn yet...
As far as autumn,,,, well.... 2 long groundswells in march from tc lusi and tc mike...... followed by ex Ita, and some of the biggest waves the east coast has seen in a long time...... I'd like a long term forecast for a flukier time of year joaske, cos Autumn is renowned for swell. Tell me about late August and september, mate. ;)
Back when Ita was a baby, I gave don weather 3 possible outcomes re' Ita..... Now joaske, this was when ita was an infant sitting off the Solomans..... She could've done a hundred things - died out, headed due west into the torres straight, which don pointed out the charts were saying at the time, she could've crossed the cape into the gulf,headed due south, sout east, hit fiji, gone ene and far far away........ A 100 scenarios......
So where were you, joaske during the ita chat? The biggest waves in ages?? My 3 scenarios ---- 1 merge with a southern low and form a super low .... 2 touch up the whole coast of qld.... 3 cross the qld coast and bring inland rain......
Guess what joaske!!!! It touched up the whole coast AND....AND.... merged with a southern low...
As fatboy meatloaf would say....... 2 outta 3 aint bad....
Cheers, Jo.....

geez guys, leave the predicting to the professionals. while its great to see u have a crack, ur really clutching at straws if u two (SD and joaske) think u 'picked' the swells ur talking of. u both left massive get out clauses in ur predictions, and then did a better job than a politician at talking up the tiny segments u got right. my big call...... second week of september, sunshine coast,size somewhere under 8ft, any direction swell except straight west. sunny but otherwise cloudy, perhaps rain. definately no snow.... unless it snows.

Joakse, I love discussing all kinds of weather forecasting techniques, especially those that aren't based on traditional sciences. However if you're gonna make a claim you really need to provide some reasoning behind it in advance (which I asked for, but received no reply).

As for "I have a whiteboard full of dates that were pretty accurate last year, but really prefer to surf alone so..." - we're not asking for detailed locations, broad areas are fine (ie southern NSW) and no matter what you predict it won't have any bearing on crowds.

Not to be too self congratulating but this was over 2 months out and is pretty spot on, granted early may is a sure bet though.

To be pedantic, you said the following things:

"Not feeling so confident of this a good start to autumn (Sydney) Hope I'm wrong. my tracking shows that early May will be the first consistent swells to kick in for this season."

We've had a decent number of 'significant swells' through autumn. Couple of ten foot days and a bunch of six foot days. So, in my eyes this is not correct.

"Some sneakers always get through but the season is pushing later which no doubt will see the late season winter torn apart by northerlies that happen from sept."

Not quite sure whether you're referring to northerlies in Sydney or somewhere else (Sydney was the only place you mentioned in your initial post). Anyway we can't evaluate that until spring.

"I will pick however, the first weekend of May ( Sydney) as a good solid swell. Give or take a day ; )"

Sure, that was a good call. However (as you've said) early May is a a pretty easy chance for a 'solid swell', of which there were no parameters defined - how big (6ft, 10ft, 15ft etc), what direction/origin (south swell, east swell, north-east swell), what generated it (tropical cyclone, ECL, cold front, Tasman Low etc).

For example, I could make a claim that the third week of August is looking like we'll see some decent snowfall across the Alps - but statistically this is a pretty safe bet, unless I hone into the specifics. Also it's kinda meaningless without some additional information around the weeks leading up to that date (a decent snowfall without a solid base is somewhat wasted for skiing purposes).

Anyway, I'm not having a go but just curious on what basis you're forming your predictions. There's a lot of knowledge in between the gaps in forecast literature - such as you may be drawing upon - and I find that surf predictions in particular is a unique stream of weather forecasting that frequently throws curveballs that can only be (partially) understood by those that have surfed all of their lives.

Mate, the further you go on, the bigger hole you are digging..... Ya got nothing to contribute.... No talent..... Can't admit you were wrong re' "Offshores all day", "11 breaks".... More semantics from a bitter little lid rider hahahaha... Hilarious....
Note Itas position.... Note swell window for northern barrier reef..... Note slack gradient at Torres straight...... I'm glad you don't believe....... One less fuckwit to ever surf the last frontier....
