Hi All
Up in Gero for a week and Seabreeze says its going to be SE... so after some local knowledge.
Where suits around the area on a SE?
Cheers Jez

Don't stress, it'll be S or SSE (in the arvo), I'll bet my house on it.

I wouldn't atm, for sure the worst season up here in 14 years, people are actually going fishing during the day, that's how farkdup it is, a SSE, ON SEABREEZE prediction is always cross on, then swings to SSE generally during the last couple of hrs of daylight

I agree. In a normal year a SE to SSE (of decent strength) in the arvo certainly means its a southerly seabreeze and you'd be in business.
But with the humid crap we;'re getting like last season, that may be dodgy. Looks OK for late sessions currently

Any other suggestions in the area for the Easterly/South-Easterly forecast for the next few days?

That wind will be sooooooo gusty and very hard work but if you're desperate you could kite on the east end of Separation point, bit dodgy though if the wind swings round to ENE - NE

Also not recommended if you are at a beginner-intermediate level, easterlies are not a steady predictable wind and you might get caught out and have a large swim in.

Thanks. The wind has not had any South in it yet, but hopefully it swings to SE this afternoon and we can try Seperation Point then

Had a coro trip planned 21-26 but looks like the weather system up north might kill the wind.
Rkn the breeze will still be in early March?
