Surf Forecast Fri 10th – Wed 15th July, 2020
A few days of excellent conditions across the Southwest belie a return to heavy, windblown winter conditions setting in over the course of next week. The immediate outlook has a favourably positioned high pressure system extending a calming, offshore airflow across the coast on Thursday and Friday, opening up great conditions on both days.
The high’s influence should spill over into Saturday morning, prior to freshening northerly quarter pre-frontal winds setting in throughout the afternoon, leading in a full day of strong north to NW winds on Sunday. Further afield, we’re already seeing Western Australia’s long-range swell window is loading up with new swell-trains as vigorous winter storm-activity burgeons across the southwestern Indian Ocean – this is discussed in more detail below.
- Fri Reinforcing SW groundswell holds in the double overhead plus range across exposed areas and gradually settles, beneath under light offshore easterly breezes throughout the day.
- Sat Long period SW groundswell gradually fills in, with early ENE to NE winds, turning NNE during the afternoon.
- Sun Rising, long-period SW groundswell builds in, with scope for early NE, NNE winds, soon becoming windblown by freshening NNW winds up to 20 to 40 knots in the afternoon.
- Mon Large, long period SW groundswell potentially blown out by fresh NNW to NW winds at 20 to 35 knots all day.
- Tue Scope for heavy WSW/SW groundswell, entirely blown out by fresh onshore WNW winds throughout the day.
- Wed Potential for still heavy WSW groundswell, still hampered by moderating NW to SW winds. Revisions likely.
