Tropical Cyclone Seroja update

Powerful south-westerly ground swell impacts Tasmania

13:39 EST

Very large, long period waves are making for treacherous conditions along the western and northern coastlines of Tasmania.  A series of cold fronts, which have brought gusty winds and cold conditions to much of the southeast, generated these large waves over the last week. Intense south to south-westerly winds over the Southern Ocean directed towards Australia with these fronts built this powerful swell event with passage of each frontal system across an already active sea state.  On Tasmania’s western coast, the Cape Sorell directional wave buoy captured some very large waves bringing dangerous surf.
