Severe Weather, Damaging Winds & High Tides for Sth Aust.

Recommended Posts

Just came across this weather warning for SA an hour ago.. doesn't look all that good ..
Severe Weather Warning for damaging winds and abnormally high tides for people in Adelaide, Mount Lofty Ranges, Lower Eyre Peninsula, Eastern Eyre Peninsula, Yorke Peninsula, Mid North, Kangaroo Island and parts of West Coast and Murraylands districts.
BoM: "A deep low pressure system centred south of the Bight will move eastwards to be near Kangaroo Island on Thursday morning and over western Victoria later in the evening.
Strong to damaging northwest to westerly winds, averaging 50-65 km/h with gusts of 90-100 km/h, are likely to develop about western Eyre Peninsula later this afternoon, extending across the warning area overnight.
Localised damaging wind gusts in excess of 90 km/h may occur about coastal areas and with showers and thunderstorms.
Locations which may be affected include Adelaide, Port Lincoln, Whyalla, Cleve, Goolwa, Maitland, Murray Bridge and Kingscote.
These conditions will cause sea levels to be significantly higher than indicated on tide tables on Thursday. Sea levels along parts of Spencer Gulf and Gulf St Vincent coastlines are likely to be at least half a metre higher than the highest astronomical tide of the year.
At the Outer Harbor tide gauge, the sea level is forecast to reach around 3.5 to 3.8 metres mid to late afternoon on Thursday. This may cause sea water flooding of low lying areas and localised beach erosion.
The State Emergency Service advises that people should:
* Move vehicles under cover or away from trees;
* Secure or put away loose items around your property.
* Don't drive, ride or walk through flood water;
* Stay indoors, away from windows, while conditions are severe."

We will keep safe Adrian - safe inside, unlike crazy Tinker :lol: 

I don't mind the rain either, it's the wind that messes everything up - hate the wind, wish that guy upstairs could cancel it out :D 

From the Southport surfcam - 1 hour before the 9.30am (.99m) low tide.  High tide at 4.04pm today at 2.41m.

Normally you would see a lot of the river bank at low tide, so the water isn't being allowed to drain due to the seas pushing it back in lol

Currently the NW wind is blowing at about 32kph/17 knots (fresh) to the predicted 55kph/30 knots (gale) - weather forecasters :facepalm:

Before you judge a crazy, you should run a mile with their tackle box. That way, when you judge them, you're a mile away and you have their tackle box.


Funny man 😂
