Plett to Port Alfred

 

Tuesday 14 January 2020

Tuesday looks perhaps 2-3' open coast with light going moderate to fresh yeasterly onshore. Partly cloudy and warm. Wednesday a small 3' swell has arrived open coast in nice early morning glass, puffing light SE onshore, which taps out at 12kts in the arvi. Partly cloudy and warm. Thursday small, weak windsweas to 2ft maybe 3 open coast in a a light to moderate yeast onshore to start, puffing moderate to fresh and broken seas ensue. Partly cloudy and warm. Friday a buster on the way, but dawnie could at first yield ok to fun 3-4' surf open coast early in nslight morning sickness. Then the SW smacks thro, and it pumps a buster from lunch or earlier. A low pressure storm moves up the coast that pumps up the volume. Surf goes windswept and builds but windswept open coast. Points might have a couple in the evening. Partly cloudy and warm with showers. Saturday the storm has moved on, and leftover southerly breezes bring cooler weather, residual showers, and a leftover 2-5ft broken up windswell. Could be a couple of okayish waves, tho not great. Partly cloudy and cool to warm with showers.
