The current building short range south swell should hang around into Saturday morning, before easing a little throughout the day. Of more interest is the likelihood that local winds will throttle back after lunch, and possibly swing to the SW during the afternoon, courtesy of a small low forming east of Bass Strait, deep within a broad trough stretching right along the East Coast.
Nothing major to finish the week. A broad, stationary high in the Bight is directing a moderate southerly wind across southern NSW and it’ll keep a lid on quality for the coming days.
Mainly small surf for the rest of the week, originating from a couple of sources. However, whilst still quite some time away, there are several indicators suggesting that we could be on target for the first East Coast Low of the season early next week.
Sunday is shaping up to be quite interesting and I would recommend keeping a close eye on proceedings throughout the day as there’s a good chance we’ll see a few windows of opportunity.
No major changes for the rest of the week. Small residual swells are expected on Thursday with early offshore winds expected to swing moderate southerly in association with a shallow change. There won’t be any major swell increase from this system - just a possible small afternoon bump in windswell at best.
You’ll have to make the most of the current south swell as it’s a one way ticket to mediocrity this week.
Looking fun across the region this weekend with a nice combo of swells out of the southern and eastern quadrants.
Not a great deal of surf is expected on Thursday however we’ll start to see a small, slow increase in new southerly swell during the day generated by a broad but ultimately moderate-strength frontal progression south of Tasmania yesterday.
Quite an interesting period ahead. We’ve got a multitude of active swell sources for the southern NSW coast, but they’re all located in the peripheries of our swell window. Which means flukey, inconsistent and unreliable swell prospects for the most part. Still, the weather's nice!
Two small south swells are expected to be in the water on Monday. The primary swell will be related to some highly refracted energy originating from the intense low passing just south of Tasmania on Saturday.
