Melkbos to Cape Agulhas

 

Tuesday 5 November 2019

A fresh NW blows as an early summer storm approaches Tuesday with fun 1-2' offshore conditions at Muizies on account of a gentle ambient South swell to 3' around. Other side ragged and messy and next to flat. Partly cloudy and warm. Wednesday a cold front hits. So does a PURE direct west swell up to 6-8' at 8am, hitting 10ft in arvi, which goes sadly to waste due to stiff ragged W wind onshores. Muizies picks up nader west swell. Just small leftovers 1' maybe 2' stiff offshore. Partly cloudy and warm with showers. Thursday swell still dik 6-8ft, WSW direction still good BUT flakey SW onshores blow. Muizies 2' early before the cross off shore SW breeze turns S onshore. Partly cloudy and warm. Showers. Friday swell goes SSW to SW direction as the storm that made it moved under the country. Inconsistent 4' sets blasted increasingly by a pomping soutie yeaster, smashing a neargale by evening. Muizies dissolves into salt-caked tears, shredded by evil onshores. Partly cloudy and warm. Saturday rumpy pumpy SE keeps blasting. Its smashed the swell flat. Water temps go frigid. Muizies a ragged onshore miffed up mess. Big windswell around in the bay tho.
