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.
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.
