Weekend Forecast 20th – 22nd September, 2019
Thursday’s big, onshore conditions will gradually come good over the next few days; culminating in great conditions across the Southwest all weekend. Friday commences with a still heaving SW groundswell under strong southerly winds; opening up reasonably good options inside the sheltered bays. From there, the southerly flow will give way to offshore ESE winds to light up conditions on Saturday morning. That sets the trend for Sunday as a still good-sized SSW swell coincides with lighter ENE breezes, making for an excellent morning across all exposed Southwest breaks, before the sea-breeze arrives in the afternoon.
Still heavy SW groundswell settles under southerly winds. Southwest: Improving 8 to 8ft+ across exposed coasts, easing during the day. Perth. Sets up to 2 to 3ft+. WIND: Southerly, 15 to 20 knots, easing to 10 to 15 knots in the afternoon.
SSW groundswell subsides under light offshore winds. Southwest: Ranging from 6 to 10ft along exposed coasts, dropping to 5 to 8ft later. Grading smaller elsewhere with size depending on exposure. Perth: Up to 2 to 3ft exposed beaches. WIND: ESE to SE 5 to 10 knots, tending SSE, Southerly and freshening in the afternoon.
Moderating SSW swell slowly eases under light offshore winds. Southwest: Clean 4 to 5ft+ across exposed coasts, wrapping at lower levels elsewhere with size depending on exposure.
