Slow but increasing activity next week
Southern Tasmania Surf Forecast by Craig Brokensha (issued Wednesday 27th May)
Best Days: Beginners tomorrow, Saturday, next week
The swell has hung in there around 1-2ft both yesterday and today with great conditions, a little above the expected 1ft or so.
This week and weekend (May 28 - 31)
While yesterday and today provided surfable small waves, tomorrow looks to actually become tiny though there'll still likely be peelers for beginners.
The models are showing an uptick in size but this is from a westerly swell, generated too north of our swell window.
We're still set to see unfavourably tracking storms from under WA, south-east through our swell window over the coming days.
The first of these pushing south-east tomorrow will generate a burst of W/SW gales on the shelf tomorrow evening and early Friday, producing a small pulse of SW swell Saturday afternoon to 2ft or so.
Strengthening N/NE winds will create OK conditions, clean all day Sunday but back to tiny.
Next week we've got a lot more activity on the way as the storm track pushes further east and under us, bringing building swells with a peak likely mid-week. More on this Friday though.
