Safety Message for East Coast of N. Ireland
This Friday, Saturday and Sunday, we're going to see spring tides, with full tide around the middle of the day. The water temps will be between 6-8 degrees and air temps will range from -2 to 5 degrees. Strong South and South-easterly winds look set to continue. Snow, sleet and rain are also forecast.
This means full high tides, big waves and strong under-pull. It also means exceptionally cold sea and air temperatures with added wind chill factor due to strong winds.
Don’t underestimate the sea or overestimate your ability. Coastal walking, open sea swimming and water based activities should be approached with great caution this weekend.
Don’t take risks – don’t put others at risk - lead by example
Remember the RNLI's water safety advice:
- Take care if walking near cliffs - know your route and keep dogs on a lead
- Check tide times and weather forecasts daily
- Take a fully charged phone
- If going afloat, always wear a lifejacket or other personal flotation device and take a means of calling for help
- Check your equipment is in good working order
- Be aware of the conditions and your capabilities and only enter the water if it is safe to do so
- In an emergency call 999 or 112 and ask for the Coast Guard ... See MoreSee Less
