It’s just stopped absolutely bucketing down on the Mid Coast, following some brief, heavy showers overnight. The wind is light from the WNW early and there’s some bump on the water… and not much swell. Its high tide and that isn’t helping, but surf is only around 1′ and looking weak. It won’t get any better as the tide drops, and low tide at lunch will only reveal bumpy 1′ waves. The breeze will swing to the NW later this morning, and then it looks like it’ll pick up to 20 knots again. The arvo doesn’t look great with a fresh nor-wester, and surf unlikely to top knee-high. Check the surf forecast to see how the next few days are looking.
Conditions have moderated on the Mid Coast overnight, with winds back to 17 knots from the WSW. The sea is brown and choppy, and surf is around 2′ just going through high tide. Not much will change as the tide heads out, but low tide might provide a few more surfable lumps at Trigs and the beach breaks. The incoming tide after lunch might produce a few 2′ sets at the likes of Seaford, but it will fill up fast and be very full after 4pm. The wind will remain onshore all day, W-SW at 15 – 20 knots. Surf will remain wind effected and choppy. Check the surf forecast to see how the next few days are looking.
NW winds are gusting over 25 knots on the Mid Coast early, and the sea is looking very chopped up. Surf is messy and around 2′, just coming off high tide at 0630. The swell will build during the day today but the wind will stay strong from the NW for most of the morning. A Westerly should kick in after lunch, and that will coincide with a building stormy as the swell lifts. Part sheltered spots will be your best bet on the incoming tide after lunch. The wind should start to wind back from mid arvo onwards, 15 – 20 knots and onshore by evening. It’s hard to say if it’ll get big enough for Adelaide’s worst kept secret spot, but Seaford will have stormy waves for a late grovel. Check the surf forecast to see how the next few days are looking.
15 knot NW winds are adding bumps on the Mid Coast this morning, but there are a few lines of swell beneath the lumps. Surf is only around 1′ this morning, but it should be bigger after lunch as some new swell starts to sneak into the gulf. Unfortunately, the wind will be stronger later, tending NW and possibly gusting close to 30 knots. It’ll be a great day of you have a kite or a sail, but for surfing it’s probably a write-off. Wave heights may be up to chest high later, there’s outside chance of some wind peaks at Moana late arvo but that’s about it. Check the surf forecast to see how the next few days are looking.
The wind is from the NW at 7 knots on the Mid Coast early, and conditions are clean-ish with some northerly wobble. There’s still no swell, and the outlook for the rest of the day is not great. The tide is heading out to a low at midday, then it’ll roll back in all afternoon to a peak at 6pm. A Northerly wind will settle in for the day, probably in the 15 knots range. Surf will remain flat on the Mid, your best bet is to head South today. Check the latest surf forecast to see how the next few days are looking.
Despite the forecast of a gale-force East wind this morning, the breeze is from the North at 15 knots on the Mid Coast first thing. It’s added a few bumps but it doesn’t really matter, because there are no waves. The tide is starting to head out, low tide is just before lunch. The BoM have abandoned the ENE wind and now predicts a moderate Nor-wester, possibly dropping out through the middle of the day. I’ll bet that’s when the sky starts a’rumblin and the lightning comes. If the wind stays light there’s a chance of small peelers on the reefs on the incoming tide, but most likely it’ll remain as good as flat for the rest of the day. The wind will swing SW at some stage tonight. Check the latest surf forecast to see how the next few days are looking.
The Easterly wind is still gusting over 25 knots on the Mid Coast this morning, and conditions are clean but blown out. There’s also practically zero swell hitting the reefs, and surf is only ankle-high. The tide is heading out to a low at 11:15, but that won’t make much difference. The wind should ease back to 15 knots or so by lunchtime, now that it’s finished blowing everybody’s bins over. Nothing much will change after lunch on the incoming tide, winds will stay out of the East and seas will be flat. The weather looks more whacky tomorrow, and next week we’ll get a stormy.

The springtime land breeze is fresh at around 15 knots on the Mid Coast this morning, but conditions are clean. There are 1′ waves on the reefs with rare bigger sets, and the tide is heading out until 11am. Low tide will favour Trigs and the beach breaks, but other options might open up as the tide starts to move back in after midday. The wind will stay offshore all day and should ease back to 12 knots through the middle of the day, before shifting to the SE late arvo. The swell won’t change much, so don’t expect much more than knee-high high waves after lunch. High tide is at 5pm.
The breeze has swung to the North on the Mid Coast early, and conditions are still clean with a slight wobble. The swell has stuck around, and there are 1′ waves with occasional bigger sets on the reefs. The tide is heading out to a low at 1030, so mid-morning will favour Trigs and the beach breaks. The BoM is predicting NE-NW winds at 10 – 15 knots, NE will be OK but NW will up the bump factor through the middle part of the day. The incoming tide should offer a lift from lunchtime onward, and it looks like winds should go back to the SE late arvo/evening. There’ll be something surfable all day.
Winds are light from the East at 7 knots and conditions are clean on the Mid Coast early, with a few lines of swell sneaking in. Tides are not ideal but there are a few 1′ waves on the reefs with occasional bigger sets. Low tide is at 10 and that will favout Trigs and the beach breaks mid-morning. The turn of the tide should give the swell a bit of a push, and a few bigger sets may appear around lunch time. The wind might go more Southerly later and take the gloss off, but it’s not expected to get much over 10 knots. High tide is at 4:11pm.
