High tides & big waves

We are currently experiencing king tides due to the sun & the moon lining up on opposite sides of the Earth (coincidentally why we had a nice lunar eclipse on Tuesday). Combined with the strong winds we can expect 2-4 metre swells until around the 28th of December - in Mana, Pukerua Bay, and along Centennial Highway (and along State Highway 58 around Pauatahanui). Extra care may be required driving along the coastal roads due to the waves & wind tossing things onto the road, and take some extra care if you happen to be out fishing these holidays!
