Severe Weather Warning
for DAMAGING SURF
For people in parts of Northern Rivers, Mid North Coast, Hunter and Metropolitan Forecast Districts.

Issued at 4:46 pm Monday, 15 January 2018.
HEAVY SURF SET TO BATTER THE NSW NORTH AND CENTRAL COASTS ON TUESDAY

Weather Situation:A deep, slow-moving low pressure system in the Tasman Sea is causing persistent southerly winds along the New South Wales coast and offshore, which is in turn generating large swells.
VERY HEAVY SURF which may lead to localised damage and coastal erosion is likely on parts of the New South Wales coast from Sydney to Byron Bay from early Tuesday morning in the south and from around midday in the north. The worst effects are more likely on the more southerly-facing sections of the coast and particularly near the time of high tide around 8am-9am on Tuesday morning.
Beach conditions in these areas could be dangerous and people should stay well away from the surf and surf exposed areas.
Locations which may be affected include Coffs Harbour, Port Macquarie, Newcastle, Sydney, Byron Bay, Ballina, Evans Head, Yamba, Maclean, Woolgoolga and Sawtell.
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 pm AEDT 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.
