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.
Today’s southerly swell is expected continue trending slowly downwards into Thursday morning, however a new pulse of south swell is expected to arrive during the day.
The building trend we’re seeing now will probably reach a peak overnight and then ease throughout Tuesday.
We’ve got a very complex period ahead, and to be honest I’m still not especially confident on the surf outlook for early next week.
The current south swell should continue through Thursday, and local winds are looking to be light and variable again under the influence of a high pressure system slowly tracking eastward through the southern Tasman Sea.
The southerly swell regime is still motoring along quite nicely.
Still looking very good this weekend, thanks to a light offshore breeze both days under the influence of a broad high pressure system.
The current swell event filling in across the Sydney coast will likely peak under the cover of darkness (d’oh!) and then trend downwards through Thursday.
We’ve got an extended period of south swells lining up for Southern NSW, with generally good conditions most days.
We’ve got a succession of very strong low/front combos sweeping through our south swell window from Saturday through until next weekend (at least), and although they won’t generate large waves for Southern NSW, the swell periods will be strong and the surf will be quite punchy.
