Port Alfred to Kei Mouth

 

Monday 19 October 2020

A bit of SW groundswell around Monday altho not big - maybe 2-4' open coast with chance of a light landbreeze at dawn, soon giving way to a moderate mushy E onshore. Partly cloudy and warm. Tuesday a strong SW buster has smacked thro in the early hours, and it shreds the open coast with white capped mush. No real swell to speak of except for windchunks blasted mostly past the coast, the horizon growing as the day progresses. Some 3-5ft sets may be making landfall open coast by evening. The wind abates in the evening. Partly cloudy and cool going warm. Wednesday overnight the wind died and it's firing 6-8ft @ 14-15 secs SW swell. Some spots a bit big. Others fire. Catch the early NW bird at dawn. It won't last. A moderately mushy yeasterly onshore will arrive, going nasty white capped and windy onshore. Sunny and warm. Thursday yech! You're moered by a two-day blast of miff beasterly yeasterly. Lank leftover groundswell smeared into a dump site. Trashed. Gone to waste. Sunny and warm. Friday ripped by staunch, nasty NE mess. Partly cloudy and hot.
