Today’s south swell will be well and truly on the way out by Saturday morning.
We’ve got a new pulse of E/SE swell of the cards, generated by a small, tight low pressure system that intensified off the West Coast of New Zealand on Tuesday morning.
The weather charts are very complex for the entire eastern seaboard.
The new S’ly swell from today’s low will be a brief affair, and will ease throughout Saturday.
We've got some great waves expected on Thursday.
So, we’ve got an East Coast Low developing on our doorstep, and the next few days are certainly looking very complex in the surf department.
I think the models are undercalling Saturday’s surf from both sources.
The source of this swell is an exceptionally broad polar low moving below the continent over the last few days, displaying a wide area of W/SW thru SW gales across the Southern Ocean.
This new south swell is being generated by a deep low and vigorous front that entered the southern Tasman Sea this morning.
The current south swell will ease a little during Saturday, but we’ll see a minor reinforcement into Sunday afternoon from a small new south swell trailing a front that’ll push into the Tasman Sea tomorrow.
