Port Edward to Amanzimtoti

 

Thursday 16 January 2020

A freshening NE kaps Thursday after a brief 2-3' peaky dawnie sesh, becoming stiff and nasty with a messy windsea mess: mixed 2-4ft E + NE swell smeared to shore. Sunny and hot. Friday the NNE has lots of N in it and it peaks as the air sucks down towards an oncoming low pressure storm down the coast. The buster is on the way but first it's a horrid onshore mess. The wind backs off in the evening, going humid and still before the elastic snaps back and the SW smashes thro. Partly cloudy and hot with showers. Saturday the buster blasts all day. Stiff SSW winds have south in them. White caps. A messy sea and 2-5ft sloppy seconds slenter to shore. Partly cloudy and cooler with showers. Sunday strong S winds are seriously sideshore and sif as the wind slides into a moderate to fresh SE. Messy 2-5ft S windswell. Cloudy and cool and rainy. Monday more moderate to fresh SE onshore and messy windswell. Typically kak mid summer miffness. Partly cloudy and cool.
