Status / Scope / Type Actual / Public / Alert
High surf advisory goes into effect later tonight until Tuesday
Moderate long-period swells are expected to reach the area and mainly affect northern and north-facing coastlines. The threat level to the life, livelihood, property and infrastructure of those using the affected coastlines is to rise to moderate. These swells could cause life-threatening surfs and rip currents on affected coastlines. A high surf advisory means that dangerous surfs of 2 to 3 metres or 6 to 10 feet will affect some coastlines in the advisory area, producing hazardous conditions.
Beachgoers, especially to the mainly affected coastlines, should be extremely cautious; bathe only where lifeguards are present or on the sheltered, less affected beaches, mainly to the south. Extreme caution is also required by those using the affected non-beach or rocky coastlines.
ABMS Met Office at 462-3017, if confirmation of this message is needed.
