With the low near Bass Strait we should have an offshore outflow across most of the region- so offshore winds all day. A fun blend of S-S/SE and E/NE swells will be on hand.

Monday, 27 May 2024

A pair of weak cold fronts are expected to pass over Tasmania in the short term, generating small S swells which will overlap with the last pulses coming from the polar low now SE of New Zealand. A dynamic, troughy pattern looks set to unfold over the weekend.

Friday, 24 May 2024

High pressure is approaching Tasmania with a weak trough expected to linger in the Tasman and across the North Coast over the weekend and lead to mostly light breezes, especially Sun. A complex polar low is approaching the NZ corridor and although the frontal progression looks a notch less favourable for swell production up the East Coast we’ll still see S’ly groundswell pulses over the weekend

Wednesday, 22 May 2024

Local swell sources dry up but polar lows better aimed at Pacific targets will send some long period S swell up the pipe over the weekend and early next week before a more subdued outlook takes hold.

Monday, 20 May 2024

The remnants of the weekend’s low pressure trough are currently being reinforced by another cold front and expected to form a broad low pressure system in the Tasman in the short term which will supply some fun waves this week with an easing trend into the weekend.

Friday, 17 May 2024

Big and windy for Sun with fresh to strong SW-S winds early, tending strong S’ly all day.

Wednesday, 15 May 2024

Backed by a strong high we’ll see very tight coastal pressure gradients with strong to potentially gale force S’lies Sat and a large windy S swell.

Monday, 13 May 2024

We’ll see some small S/SE-SE swell as the new high pressure ridge builds a  windfield in the Coral Sea and Northern Tasman but this will be smaller and weaker than previous swells of this ilk

Friday, 10 May 2024

We’ll see some long period S swell filter into NENSW across Sat a’noon at S facing beaches, holding through Sun.

Wednesday, 8 May 2024

The resulting high pressure ridge is leading to deep onshore flows and a trough along the coast is expected to move offshore Sun and form a broad trough of low pressure early next week.
