  • Northern NSW Regional Morning Report: 6.30am Sunday 17th January:  A SSW breeze first thing this morning with a slightly smaller swell this morning turning a little more ESE in direction knee to waist high on the Points and waist-high on the open beachbreaks. Catching more SE swell on the wide-open magnets and offering plenty of surfing options first thing. Make the most of it!. Coming off a low tide at 4 am and the next High tide at 11 am. Will improve with the incoming tide before the SE wind arrives.   

    Rest of the Day Outlook:  Good waves on offer throughout the day favouring southern corners protected from se winds and the ESE swell maintaining in the knee to waist high range.

    Surf Forecast 1 -3/ 1-3 SSE swell direction with 9 sec intervals. Small increase in south swell looking likely, arriving beneath early light and variable winds, favouring south-swell magnets for size. Light inshore winds tend SE/ESE, then ENE and freshening later.

    Coastal Waters forecast. Winds Southeasterly 10 to 15 knots turning east to northeasterly in the afternoon.

    Swell Southerly 1 to 1.5 metres.

    Weather Mostly sunny.

    Tides – L 5.24am ( .38) H 12.12 pm ( 1.58) L 6.49pm (.36)

     A high-pressure system near the Bight extends a ridge through New South Wales, and is working with a strong low near New Zealand to produce strong winds over southern New South Wales waters. Another, weaker high lies off the northeast coast of New South Wales. A cold front will bring a gusty south to southwesterly change extending north everywhere along the coast Tuesday.
