Weather Warnings - Severe Weather Warning for NSW

Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology
New South Wales

Cancellation of
Severe Weather Warning
for people in the Metropolitan, Hunter, Illawarra and South Coast forecast

Issued at 4:09 pm EST on Saturday 12 April 2014.

Weather Situation
A low pressure system off the NSW coast is moving slowly away to the east, with
winds and seas gradually decreasing as a result.

The Severe Weather Warning for the Metropolitan, Hunter, Illawarra and South
Coast forecast districts has been cancelled, but the situation will continue to
be monitored and further warnings issued if necessary.

Although waves are no longer expected to cause significant coastal erosion,
large and powerful surf conditions are still likely to be hazardous for coastal
activities such as rock fishing, swimming and surfing. A wind warning remains
current for Coastal Waters.

The State Emergency Service advises that people should:
- Keep clear of fallen power lines.
- Don't drive, ride or walk through flood water.
- Keep clear of creeks and storm drains.
- Beware of fallen trees or debris on the road.
For emergency help in floods and storms, ring your local SES Unit on 132 500.
No further warnings will be issued for this event.

This warning is also available through TV and Radio broadcasts; the Bureau's
website at or call 1300 659 218.

The Bureau and State Emergency Service would appreciate this warning being
broadcast regularly.
