  • Today's rating - Average

    Background Easterly tradewind swell is gradually superseded by a minor rise in short-period SSE/ SE windswell. Expect still very small 1 to 2ft waves at best across exposed QLD coasts, picking up to 2ft+ under fresh SSE winds. WIND: Early light SW to SSW, tending SSE to 15 to 25 knots in the morning.
