Further ahead and things look juicier later next week as a strong cold front sweeps in and conjoins with an area of low pressure exiting the Gippsland coast.

Wednesday, 17 April 2024

Into the weekend and we will see conditions improve as a high moves to the north of the island and fronts to the south bring about westerly ridging.

Friday, 12 April 2024

 More S groundswell expected next week, with a renewal in S swell Tues  from a deep low passing under Tas later Sun into Mon.

Wednesday, 10 April 2024

Under this sharp trough in the jet stream, as Craig pointed out, strong polar fronts are being steered NE below the Tasman, with long period S swells wrapping into the East Coast of Tasmania.

Monday, 8 April 2024

Strong frontal activity to the south tied to slow moving and complex polar lows is better aimed at NZ and South Pacific targets but plenty of refraction and sideband southerly energy is expected to make landfall in addition to the Tasman low swell this week and into the weekend. 

Friday, 5 April 2024

Over the weekend we’ll see the interior low approach and then exit the Gippsland Coast. Initially that will draw down the NE-E/NE fetch and we’ll see building swells from that direction .

Monday, 1 April 2024

By Sat morning we should see a surface low hugging the coast and tracking southwards down the NSW. A broad infeed across SE and NE quarters of the low will see a range of swells trains incoming over the weekend, with plenty of size expected. 

Friday, 29 March 2024

It’s quite a bland synoptic outlook with a large area of high pressure moving into the Tasman and becoming slow moving as it weakens. That is forcing fronts well to the south and away from the southern swell window.  Not much change for the Easter outlook. Just tiny surf is expected both days and extending into Easter Mon.

Wednesday, 27 March 2024

There's nothing reliable swell wise to target until mid-next week.

Monday, 25 March 2024

For now, frontal activity is being allowed to track in a more favourable manner for S swell production so we’ll see a week of small/moderate S swell pulses  leading into the Easter weekend.
