Status / Scope / Type Actual / Public / Alert
Small craft warning goes into effect tonight until Friday night.
Fresh to strong gusty winds, due to the tightening of the pressure gradient, are expected to cause a combination of wind waves and wind swells to reach very hazardous levels, especially in open waters. The threat level to the life, livelihood, property and infrastructure is forecast to rise to high for mariners and there is the potential for extensive impacts. A small craft warning means that wind speeds of 41 km/h or higher (22 knots or higher) and or wind waves and or wind swells of 2.7 metres (9 feet) or greater are occurring or imminent.
Small craft operators should stay in or near port, seek safe harbour, alter course, and/or secure their vessels from severe conditions.
ABMS Met Office at 462-3017, if confirmation of this message is needed.
