Cape Agulhas to Plett

 

Tuesday 14 January 2020

Contrary to the Western Cape, the suid kus is in for a run of wet, cooler weather and mostly mild winds. Tuesday looks perhaps 2-3' surf open coast with light to moderate yeasterly onshore. Partly cloudy and cool to warm. Wednesday a small 3' swell runs open coast in kiff early morning glass, puffing light SE onshore, which taps out at 10kts in the arvi. Mild day. Some showers and cloud. Warm. Thursday a bit of SE onshore may puff fresh and bumpy, starting lightly lumpy. Small, weak windsweas to 2ft likely. Partly cloudy and warm with showers. Friday dawnie could yield super fun 2-4' groundswell open coast in light offshore SW. This builds into a big busterly blow courtesy a low pressure storm off the coast that pumps up the volume. Surf goes windswept and builds to 4-5' by evening, altho broken up. Partly cloudy and warm with showers. Saturday the storm has moved on, and the resulting moderate southerly breezes bring cooler weather, residual showers, and a leftover 2-5ft broken up windswell. There are waves, but not great. Partly cloudy and cool to warm with showers.
