Severe Weather Warning
for DAMAGING SURF
For people in parts of Mid North Coast, Hunter, Metropolitan, Illawarra and South Coast Forecast Districts.
Issued at 4:55 am Monday, 20 August 2018.
DAMAGING SURF ALONG SOUTHERN AND CENTRAL PARTS OF THE COAST
A complex low pressure system over the Tasman Sea is combining with a high pressure system to the state's west to produce large southerly waves along southern and central parts of the coast.
VERY HEAVY SURF which may lead to localised damage and coastal erosion is possible for south-facing coastal zones south of Seal Rocks today.
Beach conditions in these areas could be dangerous and people should stay well away from the surf and surf exposed areas. A Hazardous Surf Warning is also current for the entire New South Wales coast.
Conditions are expected to ease later today as the low moves towards New Zealand.
The threat of Damaging Winds has eased.
Locations which may be affected include Port Macquarie, Newcastle, Sydney, Wollongong, Batemans Bay and Eden.
The State Emergency Service advises that people should:
* For emergency help in floods and storms, ring your local SES Unit on 132 500.
The next Severe Weather Warning will be issued by 11:00 am AEST Monday.
Warnings are also available through TV and Radio broadcasts, the Bureau's website at www.bom.gov.au or call 1300 659 218. The Bureau and State Emergency Service would appreciate warnings being broadcast regularly.
