Surf Forecast Friday 10th – Wednesday 15th JULY, 2020
As Thursday and Friday’s southerly pulse gradually fades we can look forward to a small, underlying pulse of long-range easterly swell, gradually emerging as the dominant source of surf across the region this weekend. As discussed last week, this is linked to a relatively weak, late season tropical depression that formed northwest of Fiji late last week. Over the course of the weekend the low drifted south to southeast and became slow moving right on the dateline throughout Sunday and early Monday.
- Fri Easing SSE swell sees inconsistent sets, groomed by light WNW winds, gradually turning NW in the afternoon.
- Sat Leftover SSE swell steadily fades beneath light offshore WNW to NW winds, tending northerly during the morning, then back to light WNW into the afternoon.
- Sun Small southerly groundswell favours south facing breaks for infrequent, rideable sets throughout the day. Early westerly breezes fade to variable, before swinging light ENE in the afternoon.
- Mon Gradual increase in SE/ESE windswell as an East Coast Low develops offshore. Potential for early light WNW, westerly winds, tending WSW later. Strong SSE shift likely south of Kiama in the evening.
- Tue Steep rising SSE to SE storm-swell sets in throughout the day. Scope for early WSW to SW winds, ahead of a gusty SSW, Southerly change at 20 to 30 knots or stronger.
- Wed Heavy SE swell generated by deep East Coast Low, with gusty, cross-shore SSW winds limiting surfable options to the most sheltered, north facing breaks throughout the day. Revisions likely.
