NORTH COAST SURF REPORT 17-05-13

Mere words are not enough to describe how fantastic conditions were on the coffs coast today, but I’ll have a go. Salubrious, superb, spectacular, sensational… Get the idea? Pretty much perfect surf about on most beaches all day with one metre plus of SE swell and light offshore winds early. Even when the wind switched onshore this arvo it was so slight it had little effect on wave quality. Let’s hope these conditions prevail over the weekend as the swell is predicted to rise to two metres. Cheers, noel.

WEATHER UPDATE: ICY COLD NIGHTS

Cold westerly winds have settled in thanks to a slow moving low sitting over the SE delivering snow to the highlands while pumping cold air north across the region. The days will warm thanks to lengthy sunny periods but there is a lot of high level cloud making its way across the country blocking some of that daytime heating. That cloud will clear over the next 24 to 48 hours making for a predominantly sunny end to the week. The nights are going to become very cold, especially across the higher ground thanks to moderate to strong westerly winds. As they ease the cold air will sink into the low lying valleys producing freezing night time temperatures so frosts will become a feature over the next week. Once the low moves into the Tasman a new swell is going to …

WEATHER UPDATE: RAIN, BUT NOT ENOUGH

A large rain band has passed producing up to 20mm in the far west near Narrabri but generally totals were less than 10mm. The rain was widespread but the small totals aren’t enough to create run off and will be absorbed quickly with what’s left evaporating due dry westerly winds. The main feature will now be cold nights producing frosts about the ranges followed by cool sunny days with consistent southerly winds.

WEATHER UPDATE: ANNUAL SOLAR ECLIPSE

This Friday morning there will be an annular solar eclipse, for us it will be partial. Annular eclipses are rarer than total eclipses. The moon is further away and doesn’t cover the sun completely causing a ring of fire to form around the moon which will seen in full over Cape York. There’s a good chance it will be seen inland as coastal cloud and showers may impede viewing in the east. Tomorrow will be a great day for the Hunter with increased warmth and sunshine. The shower activity will contract to the north mostly affecting the Northern Rivers and SE QLD. The coastal showers will spread back to the south along the coast during the end of the week.

WEATHER UPDATE: CHILLY NIGHTS MOSTLY FINE DAYS

Night time temperatures remain chilly thanks to cool, consistent southerly winds pumping that cold air northward. Tomorrow those winds will ease further so the coastal showers will break up even more becoming less frequent and only affecting the coastal fringe so the rest of the week will be mostly fine east of the divide but remaining partly cloudy with the occasional isolated shower. The big dry across the NW will continue for the rest of the week. Swell along the coast will abate but another burst of swell is on the way this weekend with another low likely to form in the Tasman.

Stacks of good surf most of this week with capacity crowds at many of our popular breaks. So many people are really enjoying the fine warm weather, calm winds and clean swells on offer. Can you blame them? As the groms are getting younger these days its great to see many of the past local legends still enjoying the stoke of carving up the odd wave or two.Today saw an abundance of fun peaky waves about for all and sundry, due to a welcome swell increase overnight. Should be more to come over the weekend. Cheers, noel.

WEATHER UPDATE: WEEKEND SOUTHERLY

The latest southerly change has moved through cooling things off while producing little in the way of wet weather. A few showers heavy at times developed across the far NE corner of NSW and SE QLD. Nights will be much colder but conditions will calm for a great looking Friday for most of the broadcast region. On Saturday another front is going to pass the SE generating another fresh burst of southerly winds weaker for north coast. On Sunday there will be the risk of coastal showers at the winds switch from the SW to SE. The main feature will be the increased swell from a deeper more intense low to form in the Tasman. The big dry for the NW, New England and Upper Hunter is to continue.

Very warm for the 1st of May ahead of a southerly change set to cool things quickly for the 2nd day. The change is going to move through overnight into Thursday morning arriving on the Gold Coast well before lunch. Seas and swell will increase, strong wind warnings are current for the entire coast. There is still no rain expected inland for the NW only coastal showers will develop and totals are expected to be small. The front will be pushed away quickly so conditions will calm down on Friday returning to the cold nights and warm days across the weekend.

NORTH COAST SURF REPORT 26-04-13

Picture perfect day on the Coffs coast today, one thing missing from the scene though, swell. Tiny waves on open beaches this morning suited to micro groms, mals or stand ups. Our pics show a couple of bodyboarders who gave up and decided to bodysurf the shoredump. Not much expected for the weekend surfwise, just more of the postcard conditions. Cheers, noel.
