East Coast Swell Alert: ESE Groundswell Inbound Early Next Week.
Issued Friday, 17 November 2017
Mid November is about as early as it gets when it comes to major swell-events of tropical origins. Most seasons, it’s not until sometime in the new-year that we see any major groundswells arriving out of the east, following months of built up heat within the sea-surface finally being released by Coral Sea tropical cyclones and sub-tropical lows developing over the Tasman Sea. Whether or not this is sign of global warming or just typical of the weak La Nina pattern that’s starting to emerge across the tropical Pacific is hard to say. Either way, the evolution of a sub-tropical low southeast of New Caledonia is now well and truly underway – and the swell will follow in due course.
Victoria is on the cusp of a major increase in WSW groundswell.
