IMPORTANT changes to marine wind warnings for New South Wales waters have come into effect.

Marine wind warnings will now be incorporated within the Coastal Waters Forecasts and not listed separately.

The warnings will cover the first two days of the forecast period (that is, 'today' and 'tomorrow'); and specify which day is affected - 'today' and/or 'tomorrow'.

The wind warning will be added as a label above the wind and wave forecasts for the affected days within the Coastal Waters Forecast.

During wind warning periods, the Coastal Waters Forecast will be issued every 6 hours.

A Marine Wind Warning Summary will be published on the Bureau's warning pages during warning periods.

The summary will provide a succinct overview of all zones affected by wind warnings for either today or tomorrow.

The summary is not itself a warning product and is not intended to replace the marine wind warnings incorporated within the Coastal Waters Forecasts.

There will also be additional ways to access marine weather warnings and forecasts via the Bureau of Meteorology website, www.bom.gov.au/marine or by the free RSS feed service.
