Surf forecast for this weekend 14th – 16th February, 2020 for beaches all round Australia. For a beach near you see the drop down boxes at Gone Surfing.
Tropical cyclone Uesi’s rapid poleward track brought the system from the southern Coral Sea, down into the central Tasman Sea by Friday morning. Over the period we’ve seen TC Uesi transition from a tropical cyclone to a sub-tropical storm; supporting a broad easterly quarter fetch across its southern and eastern flanks all the while. While core wind-speeds generated by the storm have steadily eased in line with ex-TC Uesi’s southward movement, the associated wind-field expanded across its southern flank.
For Queensland and Northern NSW this will see a steep overnight decline in ESE swell, which opens up a wider range of surfable options across the region this weekend, with early light and variable winds seeing clean conditions both on Saturday and Sunday mornings.
From the Mid North Coast down to the South Coast of NSW, large and powerful Easterly groundswell maintains peak size in the 6 to 10ft range into Saturday morning under light westerly winds, with a steady easing trend following throughout the remainder of the weekend and early next week.
Victoria will have fresh onshore winds and modest levels of SW swell offer up marginal to woeful surfing conditions across the state this weekend
South Australia there’s no shortage of swell brewing inside the bight this week, and over in Western Australia, Saturday sees small to mid-sized SW swell and an early SW change offering up marginal, wind-affected conditions throughout the day.
