Weather warning

01 Jul 2022

The Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) is predicting hazardous surf conditions and strong winds for Newcastle’s coastline between Sunday 3 July and Monday 4 July, with elevated swells again on Tuesday 4 July.

Moderate to heavy rain is forecast throughout the weekend, with the higher totals being realised late Sunday and early Monday.

City of Newcastle is monitoring its facilities and assets along Newcastle’s coastline including areas in Stockton which may be impacted by coastal erosion. The conditions are expected to present challenging conditions for north Stockton emergency structures, dunes and accessways, and potentially cause road inundation.

Newcastle’s southern beaches may also be at risk, particularly in locations which are in an eroded state from the severe storms in April.

This system will coincide with the start of the school holidays and an increase in road traffic. The community is encouraged to stay safe and follow the direction of signage and abide by beach and road closures.

Following the weekend’s swell event and when safe, the City will inspect all beaches and undertake any repairs required prior to opening any effected beaches.
