HEAVY seas will continue to pound Far North Coast beaches between Point Danger and Yamba today.

According to the Bureau of Meteorology, a low pressure system situated over the southern Coral Sea was deepening and moving east to northeastwards this morning.

Combined with a high pressure system to the southeast of Tasmania, extending a high pressure ridge to the northwest of NSW, the two systems have produced large swells and very heavy surf which may lead to localised damage and coastal erosion in some places.

Beach conditions in these areas could be dangerous and people should stay well away from the surf and surf exposed areas.

Anyone seeking assistance ring their local SES Unit on 132 500.
