Warning for dangerous winds, surf on gusty day for NSW

Strong winds and dangerous surf are set to hammer the New South Wales coast today, following a cool change that brought heavy rain yesterday.

The southerly chill was sparked by a deepening low-pressure system over the Tasman Sea yesterday.

It brought a string of storms and thunderstorms running roughly parallel to the Great Dividing Range yesterday afternoon.

Heavy winds of 55km/h to 70km/h are expected today, with higher peaks.

“Damaging southerly wind gusts reaching around 100km/h are possible along parts of the NSW coast between about Sydney and Coffs Harbour on Wednesday,” Weatherzone said.

“The greatest risk of damaging gusts for the Sydney and the Hunter coasts will be in the morning, while damaging gusts could continue along the Mid North Coast into the afternoon.”


The Bureau of Meteorology this morning issued a severe weather warning for “very heavy surf” from the Mid North Coast down to Sydney.

“Beach conditions in these areas could be dangerous and people should stay well away from the surf and surf-exposed areas,” the Bureau said.
