Much cooler day along the coast with strong offshore winds which will knock the swell down. Conditions smaller and not too consistent. Low pressure moving down the coast to provide an increase for the weekend. Swell from the East to S/E around 1m. Wind fresh to strong Westerly. Early high tide to fill some breaks and try the more protected southern corners. 1st up check Cowrie Hole,Bar Reef and Merewether. Newcastle Beach towards late morning low tide. Southern corners of Dudley and Catho. One Mile up at Port Stephens. Swimming conditions okay and it will be warmer in than out. Bar Beach, Nobbys and Merewether are patrolled. Water temp 19C.
