So, Friday's models were pretty good with their outlook for a week or more of E’ly winds: they’re still holding this pattern through into the end of this week. The block is expected to break down this weekend though, and the outlook beyond that is pretty dynamic.
We’re on the cusp of an extended period of E’ly winds, thanks to a blocking pattern setting up camp across our immediate swell window.
We’ve got a light pressure pattern across the coast for the rest of the week, so the mornings are looking clean-ish with light variable winds ahead of afternoon sea breezes.
So, first day back in the Victorian driver’s seat for a while, and what do we have? Let’s take a quick look at the available data to see if the model guidance is still stacking up. More in the Forecaster Notes.
Large swells this period with varying though generally favourable winds.
No lack of swell this period but tricky winds over the coming days as we fall in between frontal systems.
Lots of swell this coming period with varying winds adding a few curve-balls into the mix.
