Just as we begin to count the cost – and the innumerable good waves produced by the monster ENE swell that rocked the Eastern Seaboard last week – yet another one is already beginning to taking shape on recent computer modelled projections.

At first glance the evolution of the system shows an uncanny resemblance to its predecessor; spawning off a deepening upper-level trough migrating across the eastern Australian interior later this week. The system induces a deep surface trough and associated low-pressure system on the cusp of the northern NSW coast over the weekend before it moves offshore on Sunday night.
