  • Marine wind warnings now included with Marine forecasts
  • April 10, 2013


Important changes to marine wind warnings for New South Wales waters will take effect from today, Wednesday 10 April.

• Marine wind warnings will be incorporated within the Coastal Waters Forecasts and not listed separately.

• The warnings:
- cover the first two days of the forecast period (that is, ‘today’ and ‘tomorrow’);
and
- specify which day is affected - ‘today’ and/or ‘tomorrow’.

• The wind warning will be added as a label above the wind and wave forecasts for the affected days within the Coastal Waters Forecast.

• During wind warning periods, the Coastal Waters Forecast will be issued every 6 hours.

• A Marine Wind Warning Summary will be published on the Bureau’s warning pages during warning periods.
- The summary will provide a succinct overview of all zones affected by wind
warnings for either today or tomorrow.
- The summary is not itself a warning product and is not intended to replace the marine wind warnings  incorporated within the Coastal Waters Forecasts.
