Port Alfred to Kei Mouth

 

Wednesday 11 December 2019

A horrid four-day run of nasty beast wind onshore runs. Wednesday (2-4ft ENE windswell, warm with heavy showers), Thursday (2-4ft ENE windswell, warm with heavy showers), Friday (2-4ft ENE windswell reaching a sloppy six foot in arvi, partly cloudy and warm). Ooh it's Friday 13 Freddie! Schwing! Uh. Gurgle. Sigh. kaDoof! A storm called Fred has been lurking SW of SA over the last couple days. Saturday sees the effects of Fred arrive, but Slumtown side of the Eastern Cape coin looks set to continue with the beast winds despite increasing swell from the west, SW x 6ft+ x 14 second, starting to show along open coast in arvi and evening. Watch the west switch push thro in the west, opening up cleansing offshores in the arvi. Too little too late for some. Partly cloudy and thunderstorms, warm with showers. Sunday proper gruntswell to 6ft+ is pushing, and so is a rumpy pumpy SW buster to neargaleforce. This kaps the coast. Sheltered breaks only. Partly cloudy and warm, with showers. Monday morning fires.
