Well the Waitamata Harbour looks like it is set to get another sneaky Northerly over the weekend, although judging by what Metservice have to say I would get out early Saturday as it could be just plain miserable by Sunday.
Friday: Northerly 10 knots. Sea slight. Fine and cloudy periods, a few light showers developing evening.
Saturday: Northerly 15 knots rising to 20 knots in the morning, to 35 knots gusting 45 knots in the afternoon, then changing westerly 20 knots at night. Slight sea becoming moderate in the morning then very rough for a time afternoon and evening. Light rain developing in the morning, becoming poor visibility in heavier rain in the afternoon.
Sunday: Northwest rising to 25 knots in the morning and 35 knots in the evening. Showers.
Monday: Westerly 35 knots. Showers.
Tuesday: Southwest 30 knots, easing to 25 knots later in the day. Showers easing
High Tide: 3:55am Saturday 2.8m
High Tide 4:37pm Sunday 2.9m
Depending on how much this Northerly gets up over night I would suggest a Long Bay back to Takapuna run in the morning, but potentially the big paddle back from Whangaparoa if you go out later in the day.
See you out there :-)
