TOP PRIORITY FOR IMMEDIATE BROADCAST Severe Weather Warning for DAMAGING SURF and ABNORMALLY HIGH TIDES For people in parts of Hunter, Metropolitan, Illawarra and South Coast Forecast Districts. Issued at 5:28 pm Monday, 28 February 2022. EAST COAST LOW BRINGING DAMAGING SURF AND ABNORMALLY HIGH SEA LEVELS SOUTH OF FORSTER FROM TUESDAY NIGHT Weather Situation: A deepening low pressure system near the Queensland and New South Wales border is forecast to move off the coast later today. It is then expected to drift southward parallel to the coast on Tuesday and rapidly deepen in response to an amplifying upper trough and low. At this stage, the system is forecast to approach central and southeastern districts on Tuesday night or during Wednesday, however, uncertainty exists on its exact timing and where the most significant impacts will occur. VERY HEAVY SURF leading to localised damage and COASTAL EROSION is likely to develop along the coast south of about Forster from Tuesday evening. East facing beaches and surf are most at risk. ABNORMALLY HIGH TIDES which may cause sea water flooding of low lying areas are possible. Water levels could reach or exceed the highest tide of the year by more than 0.2 metres, particularly during the morning high tide. 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 and Flood Watch are also current. A separate Severe Weather Warning for damaging winds and heavy rainfall is also current for the Sydney Metropolitan, Illawarra, South Coast, Central Tablelands and Southern Tablelands forecast districts. Locations which may be affected include Newcastle, Gosford, Sydney, Wollongong, Nowra and Batemans Bay. The State Emergency Service advises that people should: * Don't drive, ride or walk through flood water. * Stay vigilant and monitor conditions. Note that the landscape may have changed following bushfires. * 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.
