GAV’S DAILY WEATHER UPDATE

Here’s Gav with the latest weather details. Very clear throughout Eastern Australia and locally. There is a massive polar storm going on at the moment, so that’s going to come through and we are going to see some massive swell for the Bell’s Easter Classic on Good Friday, offshore winds and massive waves. It is the hottest April period in history for the Alice. Couple of showers as we roll into Good Friday for the Northern NSW coast and SE QLD. Still lots of swell for boardriders. Easter Saturday looking good, but then comes a southerly which looks like it will hit Newcastle and Central coast Saturday afternoon. We are going to see a significant change there as far as wind speeds go, a burst of showers maybe some storms. On Easter Sunday showers will dominate the coastal areas and …

GAV’S DAILY WEATHER UPDATE: BIG SWELL ON THE WAY

Much of the broadcast region has been experiencing some beautiful autumn weather that’s become summer like and Cyclone Daphne is generating a huge amount of swell. For the coast it looks like a good run up until Easter Sunday. That’s when we will see our next change, a southerly will come through and start to produce some rain on Easter Sunday afternoon in the south affecting the Greater Hunter and Central Coast first of all, before moving up the coast during Sunday night and then in to Easter Monday. It is an unbelievable time for surfers. Tropical Cyclone Daphne is generating a huge amount of swell. We’re going to see a solid week of incredible waves along the entire east coast, along with some light winds.

GAV’S DAILY WEATHER UPDATE

What’s instore for the next 48 hours? Gav has the latest. Video follows text. “Well would you look at that, we haven’t seen that for a very long time, not very often in the past summer, in fact not very often in the last two summers. That is because of two consecutive La Nina’s years. But the La Nina has officially come to an end, as we looked at yesterday, and we should see more of those clearer skies across the country. The monsoon trough is well and truly drifting back now towards the equator, across the equator and moving back into the Northern hemisphere. Then the northern hemisphere moves into it’s wet season as our top end moves into it’s dry season. Frontal activity is starting to occur, we had our first one that was the first south west …

NORTH COAST SURF REPORT 03-02-12

On the improve. After a couple of weeks of torrential rain and howling onshore winds the surf is begining to clean up at most open beaches along the north coast. Our pictures today were taken at Coffs Harbours Diggers Beach on the low tide with light winds and a one-metre north-east swell throwing up some fun peaks. Conditions should improve over the weekend with the swell becoming easterly and winds predicted to stay light. Cheers, noel.

NORTH COAST SURF REPORT 11-11-11

Perfect for kids, young and old! A strong southerly change blew in overnight cleaning up the waves although the swell is still in the very small range suited to kids and longboards. After a week of relentless northerlies the cooling southerly breezes are a welcome respite. Shame about the small swell which is predicted to remain tiny for the weekend. Todays pics were taken at Diggers Beach at Coffs Harbour. Cheers, Noel.

NORTH COAST SURF REPORT 30-09-11

Patience rewards. A weak half metre swell greeted surfers up for the early this morning, while some breaks were prouducing clean lines others were a little lumpy. With a little patience though some fun waves were on offer with favourable offshore winds making most spots surfable. Our pics today were taken in Coffs Harbour on the incoming tide and before the stronger northerlys kicked in. May not be as nice conditions over the next few mornings, although the swell should strengthen. Cheers, noel.
