Next week looks even more La Nina influenced than this week, as a strong high moving at an unseasonably southwards latitude moves into the lower Tasman and directs a strong onshore flow.

Your use of the term 'babyfood' is both amusing and confusing.
I thought "tending to babyfood" meant 'turning to mush' and I laughed. Oh, how I laughed.
Then you used "clean babyfood" and I returned to my modus operandi, confused.

Are you using the drug-addict version of the term?

Looking forward to my day off this Friday.

Sorry, thats a term used around here to refer to tiny/weak surf.

ie you could feed it to babies.

clean babyfood is fun on the right board imo.

Ha, massaging it into the vocab, much like NCO.

The actual origin is, it's a phrase coined by George Greenough.

He was my neighbour for a while and I found the term so amusing and apt it stuck.

Can't look at small surf now without hearing him call it babyfood.

So some could be double dipping babyfood over the next week

Add some Russian lit into the forecast to confuse things further.

Enjoying your write ups and the explanations around model divergence.

Steve, getting worried you have become the rookie NRL half back with lots of talent - you know how it goes - first few months everything is gold and all the skill comes to fruition with lots of tries and accolades (aka you delivered us pumping surf for your first few months). A few months in - fatigue and injury set in, the opposition figure your game out and things deteriorate. (- aka surf is becoming more and more average).

Hoping you are like a Thurston/Cleary who builds resilience and goes back to delivering that gold week in and week out.

Seriously though appreciate the great reporting.

I didn’t think the term ‘baby food’ required much imagination to work out, but there you go. No problems here, Steve. Keep using it until it becomes a cliche and then change it up. :-)

First time I've seen "Tornadoes ... are likely" on the detailed warning page, and the first time I've seen a tag reading "This thunderstorm is very dangerous".

The grass went white with hail here half an hour ago. Cleared up now, though the radar shows more on the way.

Not yet enough size in the swell to take advantage of the slack wind during the storms.
