Status / Scope / Type Actual / Public / Alert
High surf warning goes into effect Thursday until Saturday for mainly northern and north-facing coastlines
Moderate long-period swells are expected to reach the area and mainly impact 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 high, with the potential for extensive impacts. These swells are expected to cause life-threatening surfs and rip currents for affected coastlines. A high surf warning means that dangerous battering surfs of over 3 metres or over 10 feet will affect some coastlines in the warning area, producing very hazardous conditions.
No one should enter the waters of the main warning areas. All are also urged to stay away from rocky and or coastal structures along affected coastlines.
ABMS Met Office at 462-3017, if confirmation of this message is needed.
