Eastern Tasmania Surf Forecast by Craig Brokensha (issued Wednesday March 27th)

Best Days: South magnets Friday morning for the desperate

Features of the Forecast (tl;dr)

  • Small S'ly swell for tomorrow PM, easing Fri
  • S/SW tending SE then E/SE winds tomorrow
  • W/NW tending fresh N/NE winds Fri
  • Tiny S/SE swell for the weekend with N/NW tending NE winds Sat, SW tending SE Sun
  • Building N/NE windswell Wed


S'ly swell from early in the week eased off through yesterday, becoming smaller today.

This week and weekend (Mar 28 - 31)

The outlook is unfortunately slow, with a small pulse of S'ly swell for tomorrow and Friday morning looking the best of it.

This is being generated by a weak polar front that's currently south of us, with it due to produce a small spike to 2ft across south magnets tomorrow afternoon, easing Friday from a similar size.

Local winds will be average and S/SW tending SE then E on Thursday, W/NW Friday morning ahead of fresh N/NE sea breezes.

Besides some tiny S/SE swell through the weekend, there's nothing significant on the cards until mid-next week when an infeed of NE winds towards a mid-latitude low kicks up some fun sized N/NE windswell. We'll have a closer look at this on Friday.
