Port Edward to Amanzimtoti

 

Wednesday 6 November 2019

A mangled morning of continual stiff NE onshore yeasterly wind Wednesday only dies into the evening, with a west coming thro overnight. Partly cloudy and hot. Thursday stiff S wind blows the coast sideways, and it's not lekker. Some buckled horizon chunks herded by hoary white-whipped winds. Some meat arrives 4-5' but overlaid by lots of mess. Cloudy and warm with some heavy rain. Friday solid 4-6ft sets feasible open coast but winds still a bit strong, blowing SW at first, SSW to S later. Winds moderate a bit, but not enough. Partly cloudy and warm with heavy showers. Ocean around rivers might be starting to discolour from inland outflow. Saturday swell down. Wind lighter. But after a possible clean (mild chance), it's gone wobbly yeast onshore moderate to possibly fresh. Leftover 4' waves around. Cloudy with showers. Sunday honking beast wind onshore kaps u another 1. A HORRIBLE spurt of onshore up for 4-5 days. The nearshore becomes a mangled discoloured mess. Lots of rain also. Miff bru. Miff.
