Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology

CANCELLATION Severe Weather Warning
for Norfolk Island.

Issued at 5:01 am EST on Monday 20 July 2015.


Weather Situation
A deep low now well east of New Zealand produced gale-force southwest to
southerly winds over the central Tasman Sea on Saturday. Computer models
suggest these winds generated a heavy swell which should now be easing around
Norfolk Island.

An easing trend is expected though dangerous surf conditions, hazardous for
coastal activities such as swimming, surfing and rock-fishing will continue

Norfolk Island Police advise: Stay out of the water and stay well away from surf exposed areas. For assistance call Norfolk Island Police on 977.
No further warnings will be issued for this event.

This warning is available through Radio broadcasts and the Bureau's website at
www.bom.gov.au. All Ocean Wind Warnings for the Norfolk Island region are
issued by the New Zealand Met Service, and are also available on the Bureau's
