    The following are some links to diving weather resources as well as sea conditions.

  • Details of Today and Yesterday's Weather at Kareela - More detailed reports from our weather station
  • Summary of this year's weather at Kareela
  • Details of Daily Weather since late April 2008 at Kareela
  • Current Sydney Weather Observations - Especially good for seeing if winds are too strong - look at Little Bay and Kurnell for Botany Bay, Kurnell and Wattamolla for Port Hacking and North Head for Sydney Harbour
  • Current NSW Weather Observations - For Sydney, good to check Illawarra and South Coast locations to see if a change is coming
  • New Sydney Marine Forecast from BOM - Seems to be similar to computer forecasting below but in a map based format - Only started about mid-January 2009 so not sure if it is any good
  • Sydney Weather Radars
  • Terrey Hills 64 km Radar
  • Seabreeze Weather for Sydney - Computer modelling of winds and sea conditions - was very accurate but from early 2010 has been very erratic - 7 days in advance - I complained to them but they did not understand that their current forecast did not even match the real situation - I suggest doubling sea heights to make it more accurate
  • Willy Weather for Cronulla - Computer modelling of winds and sea conditions - new, seems very accurate
  • Buoy Weather for Sydney - US computer modelling - very accurate but only two days in advance - See small version below
  • Current Wave Heights - Sydney
    Note that the wave period is important for diving for a number of reasons. >Click here to read why.
  • Sydney Ports Wind and Sea Conditions - good for Bare Island and Inscription Point in Botany Bay
