Today's conditions are still pretty choppy to rough, with winds southeasterly 15 to 20 knots, with seas 1 to 1.5 metres and swells still big with easterly 1.5 to 2 metres. Tomorrow and probably right through into next week will be similar, with choppy to rough conditions with winds tomorrow, southeasterly 15 to 20 knots, with seas 1.5 metres, increasing to 1.5 to 2 metres inshore and swells easterly 1 to 1.5 metres inshore, increasing to 1.5 to 2 metres offshore.. So, stay in port, steer well clear of coastal bars and offshore waters until things settle right down maybe next week and looking like, at least until after Monday.
