Please be aware

  • Wind and wave forecasts are averages. Wind gusts can be 40 per cent stronger than the forecast, and stronger still in squalls and thunderstorms. Maximum waves can be twice the forecast height.
  • These charts show broad-scale conditions across a large area. Local effects - particularly near coastlines - may not be reflected in the charts.
  • Tropical Cyclone (TC) tracks are only available when there is an active TC in the relevant area.
