Weather Warnings - Severe Weather Warning for Norfolk Island

Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology
New South Wales

CANCELLATION Severe Weather Warning
for DAMAGING SURF
for Norfolk Island.

Issued at 4:21 am EDT on Friday 18 November 2016.

Weather Situation
A deep low pressure system which generated strong south to southwesterly winds
over the southern Tasman Sea, and a large, long period swell, continues to move
away from New Zealand. As a result the swell has dropped to below 5 metres near
the island.

Damaging surf conditions, with waves exceeding 5 metres in the surf zone, are
no longer expected. Dangerous surf conditions however, will continue today and
early Saturday.

For emergency help in floods and storms, ring the Norfolk Island Police on 977

The Norfolk Island Police advise you to stay out of the water and stay well
away from surf-exposed areas.


No further warnings will be issued for this event.
