Models are also suggesting a deep sub-tropical low in Tongan longitudes right on the edge of the swell window (see below), which looks to supply some long period E/SE swell through Wed into Fri.

No change to the outlook with low pressure in the Tasman and no swell generating winds for CQ.

Wednesday, 12 June 2024

The result will be tiny/flat surf for the CQ coast into the weekend and all of next week under current modelling.

Wednesday, 5 June 2024

A trough developing on Thurs/Fri should see some small E swell develop later Fri and extend into Sat.

Monday, 3 June 2024

There is a sliver of hope if a trough deepens off the Fraser Coast Thurs before moving south. That may see a small bump in swell later Thurs into Fri.

Wednesday, 29 May 2024

The high is generating E’ly tradewinds in the Coral Sea with a fun sized surf running across CQ and expected to last into the weekend.

Monday, 27 May 2024

Tradewinds in the Coral Sea generate small swells this week and through the second half of the week we should see a small boost in size as the fetch migrates southwards and squares up more SE of New Caledonia.

Friday, 24 May 2024

By Thurs we should start seeing slightly bigger E’ly tradeswell from a fetch developing next week in the Coral Sea.

Wednesday, 22 May 2024

Another reinforcing high cell moves in from the Bight later this week, with a rebuild in SE winds better placed for swell generation in CQ.

Monday, 20 May 2024

CQ will see another slight build in fun SE-E/SE swell from mid week as SE winds rebuild in the Coral Sea.
