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.
No major changes to the weekend forecast, except for a minor upgrade for early Saturday.
A strong cold front is present racing up through the Southern Ocean and into the lower Tasman Sea, and this is generating a new S’ly groundswell that’s due to build during Friday.
Not much in the size department for the next few days.
For the entire weekend the trend is simply downwards in south swell.
Lots of south swell for the next few days, with no real change to the outlook for the rest of the week.
Right now there’s an impressive W/SW thru SW fetch of gales existing eastern Bass Strait, courtesy of a vigorous front that crossed the region overnight.
Looks like a great weekend ahead if you have a reliable south swell magnet up your sleeve.
On Friday, similarly small conditions will persist through the morning but a new south swell is expected to push through the middle of the day.
Lots of swell on tap this week with generally good conditions too.
