    The Rundown
    There’s a couple more good to great days of surfing to be had across the Southwest as a renewed pulse of SW groundswell coincides with east to northeast winds on Tuesday and Wednesday. The favourable, offshore wind-regime remains in place a high pressure system south of the state maintains a ridge across the coast, interacting with a surface trough to invigorate fresh offshore ENE winds across the region on Tuesday morning.

    As the trough shifts offshore the offshore flow will rapidly fade, tending light north and possibly variable on Tuesday afternoon. That should be followed by another morning featuring moderate NE to NNE winds extending down the coast on Wednesday morning, opening up another good window until winds veer North to NW during the day.
