****MIDDAY SURF UP-DATE****
Hello again friends and thanks for checking in with the baliwaves.com for today’s news on surfing and weather conditions from here on the friendliest of all holiday destinations, Bali.
Early this morning the day was looking like shaping up ok with our 6.45AM surf check on the Outer Reefs showing wave height to have dropped off back into the waist to chest high class between Kuta Reef and Airport Left. Along with more clean and almost glassy surfing conditions for the early risers. What wind there was was coming out of the NNW @ 0 – 2knot. But even as we were making our plan of attack to head over to the East Coast to shoot some more photos the wind swung more to the W – SW and increased up to 10 – 14knot. Currently now @ 11.00AM it’s tending more to the SW. I’d say even over on the East side the wind would be blowing cross / on shore at most locations. The good news is that the kaotic domestic holiday traffic we have had over the last 7 – 10 days should start to recede with the holiday period ending tomorrow.
Tidal info for today (our complete 2011 tide charts are on line) is saying we had a 1.7mtr High around the 10.30AM mark and then will be running out for a 0.8mtr Low @ 4.00PM. Today the 4th of January also see’s a New Moon rising tonight so we will start to see some better tidal ranges over the next week.
Weather wise this morning I could see the blue sky and hear the birds singing. But by 9.00AM the wind had picked up and the clouds started to roll in. Temperature wise the forecast is calling for a maximum of 32 degree’s Celsius but I think we’ll be lucky to feel 28 degree’s Celsius. There’s also a big chance of some afternoon thunderstorms and rain.
Ok so that’s about all we have for you today, if there are any significant changes in the waves or the weather I’ll keep you up to date via the twitter section of baliwaves.com. Other than that we’ll be trying again tomorrow !
