The complexities outlined in last Friday’s forecast have held nicely through into this week.
We’re looking at a similar mix of short range NE windswell and some small distant E/NE swell for much of the weekend, probably similar on Saturday as per what we saw today.
Based on today’s (under) performance I’m going to pull back Thursday’s expected size from the distant trade swell source.
The stationary trade belt across our E/NE swell window is a beauty, and it’s going to be a source of quality surf for quite some time.
A fun mix of S’ly groundswell and NE windswell is expected all weekend.
We’ve got some more south swell due over the coming days, generated by the parent low to the front that whipped up today’s pulse.
Couple of options on the cards this week.
Today’s southerly change will whip up a short range south swell that’s due to peak overnight before trending downwards through Saturday.
So Christmas Day, eh? Unfortunately it’s not looking too flash.
Today’s freshening NE winds are kicking up a small local swell that’ll occupy the region through Tuesday.
