Beach Report
Saturday, 20/04/2019 05:59 AM
Swell 1.5-2m Easterly with bigger sets on the open beaches. 1.2-1.5m in the bays on the north side of headlands
Wind 15kts S/SE early, forecast to become 15-20kts E/SE with stronger gusts during the morning.
Tide High @ 8.30am ... Low @ 2.30pm
Water 25 degrees
It should be a partly cloudy day, with an 80% chance of showers and possibly a storm and top temperature of 26 degrees. With the solid swell and big tides due to last night's full moon, it's potentially dangerous swimming in the surf, so swim only in the patrolled areas marked by the red and yellow flags, particularly on the ebb tide from mid morning to mid afternoon, when rips will be enhanced as the increased volume of water drains off the beach. The best and safest beaches will be the bays on the north side of the headlands at Noosa, Mooloolaba, Burleigh, Kirra, Greenmount and Rainbow Bay.
