Only one notable swell this period

Eastern Tasmania Surf Forecast by Craig Brokensha (issued Friday 27th September)

Best Days: Dawn or late Monday, Tuesday morning


Good easing levels of S'ly swell yesterday morning, with nothing of note left into today.

This weekend and next week (Sep 28 – Oct 4)

A S'ly change moving up past us overnight will produce a very weak and small to tiny S'ly windswell for tomorrow and with light morning winds. There may be a 2ft wave across the northern half of the coast, but it'll have no power and fade rapidly.

Of greater importance is the S'ly swell due into early next week.

A strong but weakening low that's currently moving in along the polar shelf will morph into a relatively weak but broad polar front on Sunday. This will then project up towards New Zealand, generating strong W/SW tending SW winds and a small though fun pulse of S'ly swell for Monday and Tuesday.

The swell should come in at 2-3ft across south swell magnets on Monday and ease from a similar size Tuesday with a dawn W/SW tending S'ly breeze Monday (not great) though winds are due to tend N/NE later, so this might be the go.

Tuesday looks fun with a light morning W'ly breeze ahead of NE sea breezes.

Following this there's nothing too significant on the cards at all for the rest of the week. A smaller S'ly swell may be seen late week, but we'll have a closer look at this Monday. Have a great weekend!
