The last round of southerly swell from this pattern is starting to nose through the Southern Tasman Sea and we’re looking at some great waves for the weekend.
We’ve got an extended period of active south swell inbound for Southern NSW.
A deep low south of Tasmania - responsible for snow down to sea level there this morning - is tracking up into the Southern Tasman Sea, and generating a new swell for Southern NSW.
Don’t expect much surf this weekend - if you have to get wet, aim for an early paddle on Saturday.
￼The trend for the next few days is down.
All of this activity will contribute strong southerly swell to the region on Tuesday.
If the swell models are to be believed, we’re looking at a small drop in swell height and a small increase in swell period into Saturday.
Only small surf is expected for the rest of the week, of which south facing beaches - for the first time in quite a while - will end up seeing the smaller end of the size spectrum. This will mainly affect locations like Cronulla, Bondi and the Northern Hunter.
After a couple of weeks of dynamic activity, we’ve got a somewhat benign outlook period ahead.
We’ve got a complex mix of south swells both arriving and departing, but in any case Saturday’s conditions will be heavily affected by gusty trailing southerly winds in the wake of the low, as it tracks eastward.
