We’re now in the midst of an energetic run of sizeable, mid-period SSE swell across the NSW coast. And while the immediate outlook sees a gradual easing trend setting in on Friday, it’s becoming increasingly clear there’s a whole lot more to come in the way of SE groundswell across the entire East Coast over the weekend and early next week. The source of this extended run of swell is a vigorous low pressure system that developed over the southern Tasman Sea on Tuesday, before slipping away to the east/ southeast on Wednesday.
