If Saturday’s large round of south swell wasn’t enough to qualify as the first serious swell-event of the winter, then Tuesday’s will. Surf and weather conditions are about to transform dramatically over the next 24 hours as a front sweeping across Bass Strait forms a rapidly deepening low off the far southern the NSW coast on Monday night. The subsequent increase in southerly-storm swell is looking about as steep as it gets – and the gale-force southerly change preceding the increase will also be strong enough to wreak serious havoc across the coastal fringes as it kicks in at 30 to 45 knots early on Tuesday morning.
