With today’s S/SE swell arriving a little earlier than expected, it’s fair to assume that we’ll probably see the backside of this event a little earlier than Friday’s forecast anticipated.
Another strong front in the current progression has generated a new pulse that’ll push across the region Saturday morning.
The frontal progression responsible for the current south swell tracked a little off axis compared to Monday’s model guidance, which has resulted in a slight downgrade for Thursday.
The biggest swell from this pattern is due on Thursday, originating from the strong secondary front.
No major surf for the weekend but there should be good waves at south facing beaches both days.
The Tasman Low responsible for our current swell event will deliver one final push of excellent surf, and it’s due to arrive over the coming hours.
South swell will be the dominant theme for the week.
No changes for the weekend outlook.
Our recent run of excellent late-autumn surf will continue through the next few days.
The weather system responsible for our expected S/SE swell tomorrow performed quite impressive, recording S’ly winds of 50-60kts immediately south of New Zealand over the weekend.
