High surf warning off

001

AIRPORT–Seas in the local area are forecast to remain above ten feet at least until Thursday. A small craft warning remains in effect until then. Small craft operators and sea bathers are urged to stay on shore by the Met Office. The high surf warning has been cancelled.

A less intense low-pressure system well north of the region will continue to generate long period swells and above-normal wave action resulting in hazardous seas across the region. These hazardous sea conditions will persist until Thursday, as long period northwest to northerly swells continue to affect the region.
Though slightly weaker, the low-pressure system will continue to generate seas up to 13 feet across the Atlantic waters. Seas are forecast to remain above 10 feet at least until Thursday; consequently, a small craft warning is in effect until then. Small craft operators and sea bathers are urged to stay on shore.
As a result of the large breaking waves, hazardous conditions can be expected particularly along the country’s northern facing shores. Other sections of our coasts could also experience locally rough seas.
Some coastal flooding is also possible in a few spots and owners of coastal facilities should try to protect their possessions against destructive waves, wherever this is possible.
