We are in for a mix of left over E/NE and S'ly groundswell early in the week, with workable winds during the morning. Make the most of Tuesday and Wednesday, because it's looking ordinary until Friday.
Slowly building E/NE groundswell tomorrow, peaking Sunday morning with offshore winds ahead of a S'ly change. Swell easing Monday with onshore winds, followed by some fun NE windswell Wednesday morning.
We are still looking at open beaches building to a solid 4-6ft by Sunday with offshore breezes holding until at least early afternoon each day of the weekend. A good few days ahead, although inconsistent at times.
A good looking forecast with offshore breezes dominating and a building E/NE groundswell forecast to peak on Sunday with sets in the 4-6ft range.
Another round of E/NE groundswell on the cards from mid-way through next week. Until then, make the most of each morning with small workable surf under light winds.
Thursday morning is looking fun with a sizey S'ly swell under light offshore breezes. The leftovers on Friday morning are also looking good although smaller. Open beaches shouldn't miss out with inconsistent 2ft options filling in off a long range E/NE groundswell.
Eastern Tasmania Surf Forecast by Guy Dixon (issued Monday 15th February)
Best Days: Each morning. Thursday looks is worth checking out.
We saw the effects of a weak northeasterly windswell over the weekend, with a small swell building to the 1-1.5ft range on Sunday, which faded fairly quickly into today with just 1ft leftover.
Most locations were clean early, before localised seabreezes became established each afternoon, taking the sheen off the quality.
Not much in the size department until next week when we see a long range E/NE groundswell fill in from TC Winston, accompanied by a building southerly swell off a deep cut-off low.
Not a whole lot to work with until Tuesday when an E/NE groundswell is due to fill in across open beaches. A strong front/cut-off low should favour protected southern corners, while exposed south swell magnets pick up building low quality windswell.
A pretty quiet week ahead, although clean each morning. Better prospects come next week with the chance of a long range E/NE groundswell from a potential tropical cyclone.
