WED 24. 8am
Front crossed 7-8pm with a shift to the S; max NW wind yesterday early to mid afternoon.
Today – S-SE flow then back to S for the afternoon.
Easing gradient strength tomorrow with less cloud the thermal shift left will probably get to E and possibly ENE-NE.
Less gradient strength for Friday – still from S but with less cloud and reasonable sunshine, the breeze should shift from SE to NE pretty quickly and be NE-N for the afternoon.
Another front will approach from the Tasman Sea at the weekend – flow back to the W then NW on Saturday and NW for Sunday ahead of the later in the day or at night.
Still a S flow this morning – best breeze is over the ocean to the east and the west; over the land, the cooler overnight conditions have dampened the breeze. Mixing mid morning will increase the S breeze over the inner Bay. The breeze will tend a little left to SE on the east coast and over the eastern Bay during the later morning, then watch for the breeze to build and shift back right to the S – that’s the breeze from the west coast/Tasman and that will give the strongest wind of the day – mid and later afternoon. The left will be more prominent over the outer Bay, while the right S breeze will come from the south (but actually the west coast!). Dry with some cloud around.
