Plett to Port Alfred

 

Thursday 30 July 2020

It's cooking brah. Thursday fires 6-10ft open coast in stiff W busters in morning, easing all day into a crisp clean arvi of moderate offshore SW. Partly cloudy and warm with light showers. Friday still some 5-7ft oomph open coast in crisp NW devils wind early then W to SW offshores. Kiffness. Swell eases to 4-5' in arvi. Sunny and warm. Saturday more swell as another booster overlays the decaying underlying swell. Solid 6ft sets open coast in kiff crisp straight W offshore. Nice! Evening glassoff caps epic day. Sunny and warm as a High pressure rules. Sunday slow decay of 4-5 going 2-4ft swell with weird stiff NNE to N winds, a precursor to a big buster coming tomorrow. The potent devils wind, which is warm and dry, eases in arvi, eventually swinging W to SW offshore. Partly cloudy and throat cracking hot. Monday a stiff W buster is thro. White capped seas, wind-whipped windswell and building groundswell only late in day and overnight. Sunny and warm.
