A slow moving node of the Long Wave Trough will direct persistent, strengthening polar fronts through our swell window bringing lots of swell but less than ideal winds.
Following our first cold outbreak of the season last weekend and earlier this week, we've got another progression of cold fronts and polar air due to make its way up and across us through next week under the influence of a strong node of the Long Wave Trough. This node will be slow moving, taking its time to cross the Tasman Sea and then across New Zealand next weekend.
The current large swell will ease rapidly overnight but conditions will clean right up and there's fun surf days from the weekend.
No great quality swells but a few windows either side of the strong, cold low currently moving across us.
