Surf Report Mid Coast NSW

by Peter Hudson
  • 3/09/2014 6:54 AM | Report

    Strong SW wind around 25 knots has been blowing all night producing average conditions on most beaches. Southern corners have the cleanest conditions with the bigger headlands providing some respite from the strength of the wind. Swell is southerly and most of it is going past. Open beaches are big and messy. Main breaks around town will offer a few small waves during the morning but expect the size to really pick up in the afternoon. For surf lessons and board hire contact Port Macquarie Surf School on 6584 7733

The low is expected to move slowly to the east later today as a high pressure system moves to western NSW. The low should move slowly across the Tasman Sea Thursday and Friday with the winds and surf along the coast slowly decreasing. Gale Warning for Wednesday for Macquarie Coast
Winds: Southwesterly 35 to 45 knots.
Seas: 4 to 5 metres.
Swell: Southerly 3 to 5 metres. Weather: The chance of thunderstorms offshore this morning. Caution: Large and powerful surf conditions are expected to be hazardous for coastal activities such as crossing bars by boat and rock fishing.
