Weather Situation

A high pressure system over the Great Australian Bight extends a ridge along the southern Queensland coast. Tropical Cyclone Ola over the eastern Coral Sea will slow in its southward motion, but continue to weaken today. The remains of the cyclone will remain well offshore, but will still enhance the pressure gradient over southern waters leading to strong winds, and will also produce increasingly powerful swell through the next few days.


Winds :  Southerly 20 to 25 knots turning southeasterly in the late afternoon. Winds reaching up to 30 knots in the evening. Lighter winds inshore early.

Seas :  2 to 2.5 metres.

Swell :  Southeasterly 1.5 to 2.5 metres, decreasing to 1 to 1.5 metres around midday.

Weather : Partly cloudy. 80% chance of showers.

Caution : Large and powerful surf conditions are expected to be hazardous for coastal activities such as crossing bars by boat and rock fishing.

Spinkys’s Best Bet To Get Ya Froth On :

The Sth Easterly swell has greeted us with waves in the 4-5 foot range with some solid set waves on the open beach breaks. Winds are light early from the South , and will strengthen to 15-20 knots before shifting Sth East up to 25 knots. Tide is incoming with high at 8.25 am.. Moffats, Pt Cartwright , The Bluff and Corner at Alex, Fun waves on the points of Noosa if you can handle the crowds, with the southern end of Maroochydore looking good before the wind strengthens. The patrolled beaches of Mooloolaba and Noosa the best, being more protected from the larger swell. The water temp at 25c. Enjoy your day in the waves. Ýo
