Plett to Port Alfred

 

Wednesday 11 December 2019

Stuck in the middle with you. A three-day run of nasty beast wind onshore runs through Wednesday (2-4ft ENE windswell, partly cloudy and warm), Thursday (2-4ft ENE windswell, partly cloudy and warm) and 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. Fresh going strong W winds, and rising swell (SW x 6ft+ x 14 second) along open coast. Could fire at pointy spots in morning. Partly cloudy and warm with showers. Sunday the biggest element of the swell from more recent moments in Fred's life brings sets to 8ft open coast. However, the west is going gangbusters at first, blowing out most open breaks, but protected on points. Arvi sees wind moderate, but stay west, opening more options. Partly cloudy and coolwith showers. Monday morning fires.
