Synopsis: Fresh winds, due to a brief tightening of the pressure gradient, is forecast to cause a combination of wind waves and wind swells to rise, resulting in hazardous seas. The threat level to the life, livelihood, property and infrastructure of mariners is forecast to rise to significant, with the potential for extensive impacts.

Seas (significant wave heights): 2 to 2.5 metres (6 to 8 feet), occasionally or locally reaching 3 metres (10 feet).

Wind waves and or wind swells: 1.5 to 2 metres or 5 to 7 feet and occasionally higher. Dominant wind wave period is 6 to 9 seconds.
