North Sails Weather – Wednesday 24 Jan

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.
