Huzza, we’ve finally got a morning offshore breeze as the surface high pressure ridge starts to slacken along the coast. Don’t get too excited though, this paltry land breeze is blowing over denuded banks, brown water and a declining E short period swell in the 2ft range. It would be worth cruising the beach breaks and trying to find a useable piece of sand this morning but keep expectations low on any exploratory mission and you won’t be disappointed. Welcome to Tropical cyclone Sandra, which formed overnight and is currently 990Km NE of Mackay and meandering NE at the moment. She’s expected to wander aimlessly for a few days before tracking southwards through the Coral Sea. A coastal crossing could still be on the menu but models are now showing a much more favourable parallel track as well. Stay tuned.
