📢 #UPDATE: This warning has now been lifted
📢 #UPDATE 3:20pm 21 March: Heavy Swell Warnings 🌊⚠️
Kia ora e te whānau, below is an update about the Heavy Swell Warnings active today and tomorrow:
MetService New Zealand have issued Heavy Swell Warnings for:
📍 Wairarapa: Turakirae Head to Mataikona
⚠️🌊 Southwest combined waves expected of 6 metres early Wednesday morning about Palliser Bay, then spreading north with height of 5 to 5.5 metres. Easing to 4.5 to 5 metres on Wednesday evening.
📍 Wellington/Hutt Coast: Cape Terawhiti to Turakirae Head
⚠️🌊 Southerly combined waves are expected of 4 metres developing this evening (Tuesday), rising to 5 metres early Wednesday morning. Waves gradually easing late Wednesday morning.
At this stage, the impacts are expected to be minor. However, recreational water users should avoid the water for the next 24 hours. Heavy swells could bring debris and some overtopping onto exposed coastal roads. The highest risk period is the 2 hours either side of High Tide and King Tide:
Cape Palliser high tides: 5:57am and 6:27pm Wednesday
Castlepoint high tides: 6:19am and 6:46pm Wednesday
⏰ Wellington: 5:20pm Tuesday and King tide 5:50am and 6:20pm Wednesday.
We expect heavy swells like this in the winter months, so even though the sun is out, please take note of the following advice and keep up to date with the latest from MetService New Zealand:
🚶♀️🚗Take care when walking or driving along roads directly exposed to the sea during this time. Swells can cause surface flooding and debris wash up including driftwood, seaweed, sand and gravel.
📍 Be particularly careful when driving around coastal roads that have been impacted by swells in the past, such as; Owhiro Bay, Breaker Bay, Worser Bay in Wellington, the East Harbour Bays from Lowry Bay to Days Bay and Cape Palliser Road, Tora Farm Settlement Road and Mataikona Road in the Wairarapa.
🚣♀️🏊♀️ Surfers, divers, recreational reef fishers/surfcasters and boaties should avoid locations such as; the Wellington south coast, including Pariwhero/Red Rocks, Lake Onoke outlet, Cape Palliser, Castlepoint reef and the Whakataki to Mataikona coast.
🚗🌊Although there is low risk to significant overtopping, residents living in exposed coastal areas including the above named roads should park vehicles away from the seaward side of the road as a precaution.
🚧 Metservice have flagged the potential for some minor wave splash across the south-bound lane of State Highway 2. Drive to the conditions and stay up to date thorough Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency Wellington and Metlink
🚢 Check ferry schedules through Metlink as heavy swells may disrupt some sailings.
