Bureau warns of more strong winds
A low pressure system is located well east of the Queensland coast and is moving further away, while a strong high pressure system is located in the southern Tasman Sea. The combination of these two systems is producing strong winds and large swells along the southern Queensland coast.
Large waves and dangerous beach conditions will continue along exposed beaches between Sandy Cape and the New South Wales/Queensland border tonight.
Water levels on exposed beaches will again exceed the highest tide of the year on tonight's high tide with further beach erosion.
The waves are forecast to gradually ease overnight and during Monday.
The State Emergency Service advises that people in the affected area should stay well away from the water's edge in coastal areas.
