A series of modest fronts through the Southern Ocean now and over the coming days (pushing east of Heard Island at the moment) will produce some small new swells for the second half of the week though no major size is expected.
The models have been consistent all week, the satellite data confirms the model guidance and so we’re looking at very large waves building through Saturday, peaking late afternoon and easing slowly from Sunday morning.
So, here comes the expected large swell for Thursday.
The interesting thing about this week’s upcoming swell on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday is that it'll probably be a distraction, and many people many not realise that there’s a likely better swell inbound for the weekend. So don’t over-froth too hard over the coming days as there’s more to come.
Small weekend with good winds for magnets. Large swells developing for next week due to the Long Wave Trough.
New SW swell tomorrow morning with a SE windswell and gusty E/SE winds. Easing surf with a better E'ly breeze Friday morning, with better winds on the weekend. Larger W/SW swell energy for next week.
Poor E/SE to SE winds all this week with a mix of swells. Cleaner weekend with some new SW swells and then some proper storm activity next week.
Small easing surf tomorrow, with a very inconsistent W/SW groundswell Sunday with good winds for swell magnets. A stronger W/SW swell is due Monday with favourable winds.
Easing swell with early offshores tomorrow, onshore and poor Friday. Cleaner and easing Saturday with a very inconsistent long-range swell for Sunday.
Small to tiny tomorrow with a good new swell for Wednesday with all day offshores for the beaches. Onshore change moving through Thursday and then small and clean east of Melbourne over the weekend.
