  • Swell analysis

    Summary
    A notable pulse of SW swell arriving on Tuesday is followed by a rapid decline in wave-energy on Wednesday - one that looks like culminating in small to tiny surf state-wide throughout Thursday. As mentioned last week, this is linked to a new high pressure system moving eastward across the Bight before weakening over Victoria on Tuesday, coupled with a relatively subdued Southern Ocean storm track inside Australian longitudes.

    However, this lull in activity will only be short lived. A new, complex mid-latitude low setting up below Western Australia on Wednesday and Thursday is shaping up as a robust source of WSW groundswell for the state this weekend; manifesting as a steady building trend in wave energy from Friday through to Sunday.
