  • Today's rating - Poor

    Conditions quickly go from bad to worse as a solid SSE windswell under freshening onshore winds is superseded by steep rising ESE windswell this afternoon. Expect junky up to 2 to 4ft+ south facing beaches, rising to a jumbled 3 to 5ft+ during the early afternoon and a stormy 4 to 6ft+ later. WIND: Southerly 15 to 25 knots, tending SSE and freshening during the morning then SE 20 to 35 knots the arvo.
