    Summary
    Monday's smaller, windblown SE swell probably marks the worst of conditions this week, with improving prospects on the long-term horizon. For the immediate future an emerging Tasman high will dictate proceedings: maintaining a light onshore SSE to SE airflow across the coast for most of the working week. That said, conditions should still be reasonably good, given wind-speeds aren't forecast to top 10 to 15 knots - and there will be periods of lighter inshore south-westerlies opening up reasonably good conditions during the early morning hours.

    aSoutherly swell kicks in overnight to push wave heights up to a windy 4 to 6ft across southern exposures on Saturday morning, with early SW winds seeing the best of it before winds turn southerly and increase during the morning. Sunday morning holds similar potential for reasonably large, cross-offshore conditions as a reinforcing pulse of SSE groundswell coincides with early SW/SSW winds.
