Port Alfred to Kei Mouth

 

Thursday 16 January 2020

A schtonking NE kaps Thursday into a messy windsea mess, with a mixed 2-5ft SW + E + NE swell smeared to shore. Sunny and hot. Friday a buster on the way, but dawnie could at first yield ok to fun 3-4' surf open coast early but a bit of morning sickness could nullify that. Then the SW smacks thro, and the buster hits in the arvi as a low pressure storm moves up the coast. Sometimes you get a calm hour or two before, when it might be fun. Surf goes windswept and builds into the evening. Partly cloudy and hot with showers. Saturday the storm has moved on, and leftover stiff S breezes bring cooler weather, residual showers, and broken 2-5ft S windswell. Partly cloudy and cool with showers. Sunday a high seeps around from the Western Cape and winds go from moderate S to nasty beastly southeasterly. Surf 2-3' but poor conditions. Partly cloudy and cool with showers. Monday more fresh SE onshore. Typically kak mid summer miffness. Partly cloudy and cool.
