Surf Report Mid Coast NSW

  • 7/03/2015 7:19 AM | Report

    Today's rating - Pretty Good

    Wind is SW early but only light. Southern headlands have the cleaner conditions for the morning surf. Swell is south. Open beaches are worth a look if you want a few bigger waves. Waves on these beaches are around 4ft. Main breaks around town have smaller waves. Waves will start to pick up again this afternoon. Wind will also swing to the NE in the afternoon. For surf lessons and board hire contact Port Macquarie Surf School on 6584 7733.

Marine Outlook

A high pressure ridge extends across northern and western New South Wales, while a cold front clips the southeast corner. A weak trough is forecast to linger in the south on Saturday, with remaining areas experiencing a shift to northeasterly winds as a high becomes established over the Tasman Sea. A fairly weak pressure pattern is then expected to remain through much of the coming week.
Winds: East to northeasterly 10 to 15 knots reaching up to 20 knots inshore during the afternoon and evening.
Seas: Below 1 metre, increasing to around 1 metre around midday, then increasing to 1 to 1.5 metres during the afternoon.
Swell: Southerly 2 metres, increasing to 2 to 3 metres during the morning. Weather: Partly cloudy. 40% chance of showers later tonight. Caution: Large and powerful surf conditions are expected to be hazardous for coastal activities such as crossing bars by boat and rock fishing.
