Surf Forecaster – Anthony ‘Spinksy’ Spinks


Weather Situation

High pressure centres over the Tasman Sea will maintain a ridge over southeastern Queensland throughout the forecast period. Ex-Tropical Cyclone Winston lies to the northwest of Norfolk Island and will continue tracking in a general westerly direction before most likely shifting west northwest into the southern Coral Sea during the weekend. The system is producing a long period easterly swell that will likely increase on Saturday. Winds and waves should then gradually decrease from Sunday as Ex-Tropical Cyclone Winston weakens.
