A marine weather warning is current for the Coast, and surrounds.
We're being told to avoid our beaches, with south facing coastlines likely to cop quite the beating over the next two days.
The most severe weather is likely to hit this afternoon.
Some areas to the north of our region will experience gale force conditions, with some indication we may see similar events.
Strong winds will present extremely hazardous conditions.
Owing to the weather, the Palm Beach Ferry has announced it will be diverting through Patonga today, and likely also tomorrow.
It comes after we shivered through our coldest night this year. Last night, we saw overnight lows of just 9 degrees - roughly five degrees below the average autumn temperature.
