Cape Peninsula


Melkbos to Cape Agulhas

 

Tuesday 7 July 2020

Shew! We get caned by 4 storms in 5 days! On Tuesday though, a big High (bane of winter) parks out west, pushing a feisty 960mb storm south. Swell solid 10ft+ open coast and deep reefs in moderate / fresh S crosshore winds. Swell wanes to 8ft. Muizies still 3-4', easing slightly in mild mucky S onshore. Partly cloudy and cold with mild chance of showers. Wednesday lekker day. Sunny (freeezing start), with whiff of light E offshore, and kiff 5-7' surf open coast swell easing 4-5'. Warms up as soft berg NE puff in arvi. VERY KIFF BRU. Even Muizies is fun 2-3' and glassy if slightly wobbly at first. Thursday yikes. Now the string of fronts line up! A new swell brings 8ft sets early, quickly 10ft, reaching 15-18ft into the arvi. A fierce overnight NW wind obliterates the sea. Rips neargale early. Vicious NW gales smash inland, leaving the coast easing to fresh west. Muizies fires after the NW backs off to moderate / fresh W. Partly cloudy and cold with heavy showers from lunch. Friday a 2nd storm and front hits. A messy 4-10ft sturm drang blows up in honking NW (neargale SW by evening). That makes it quite yucky. The storm (993mb) is right on top of us. We are ripped by harsh winds and LANK rain. Muizies weird and stormy 2-4'.  Saturday weather tails off, seas start calming, winds ease to glassy variable N by arvi. Surf looks waaaay better, solid 12ft west swell, easing to 8ft. Deep water reefs, points have waves. Many spots out of control. Muizies fires 3-4'. Partly cloudy and cold with showers.
