🌊Severe Weather Warning🌊
for DAMAGING SURF

For people in parts of Mid North Coast, Hunter, Metropolitan and Illawarra Forecast Districts.

Issued at 10:41 am Monday, 20 August 2018.
DAMAGING SURF ALONG 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 parts of the coast.

VERY HEAVY SURF which may lead to localised damage and coastal erosion is possible for south-facing coastal zones for parts of the Mid North Coast, Hunter, Sydney and Illwarra coast.

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.

Locations which may be affected include Port Macquarie, Seal Rocks, Newcastle, Sydney, and Wollongong.

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 5:00 pm AEST Monday.
