Freshening SE winds through the Coral Sea will kick up some new short range swell for southern Qld over the coming days.
No major changes to the weekend outlook. And, the long term forecast looks excellent.
SE Qld will be relying on the fading leftovers of groundswell from TC Ola on Thursday, plus short range SE energy from the building ridge.
For those non-travellers out there, ‘Ola’ is Spanish for ‘waves’, which has gotta mean something, right?
We’ve got quite a complex weekend to forecast for across this region.
As for Friday - it’s a simple matter of up, up up during the day. But the key is: when?
It’s hard to make a judgement call on the weekend’s prospective surf outlook because regardless of local winds and swell trends, the previous few days rain activity will have a reasonable bearing on the surf quality.
We’ve got some great waves ahead.
Otherwise, we’ve got some good developments starting to occur in the eastern/central Coral Sea, by way of a developing Tropical Low.
The long term focus is is in the Coral Sea where we’re expecting some significant developments throughout the week as a broad Tropical Low develops north-west of New Caledonia and tracks southwards.
