Southeast Queensland is bracing for wild weather with huge swells generated by Cyclone Oma to batter the coast during the week.

From today the coast will see surf conditions becoming risky as the weather system approaches.

Tropical Cyclone Oma is still 1300km off the Queensland coast.

"The system is moving back towards eastern Australia".

"High tides combined with large waves will cause some beach erosion anywhere from Sandy Cape in Queensland to north New South Wales".

About 3,000 homes north of New Caledonia's main island Grand Terre lost power in the last 24 hours after Tropical Cyclone Oma hit the French territory in the South Pacific.

"Currently, hazardous surf warnings have been issued", Holt said.

The Weather Bureau has already put in place a hazardous surf warning for Gold Coast waters, with strong wind alerts likely on their way as well. Temperatures in the South Island would be pushing to reach 15C. Katelyn Lynch and Sophie Agius show how its done.

"The Great Barrier Reef offshore waters might experience some swell, but generally along the coast itself the reef would protect you from the bigger swell".

What is known is that some type of new low will form around the New Zealand area this weekend but with so much chaos we can't be specific about how much rain will fall, where and when as of today.

"If you are heading to the beaches, have a look at the swell, and even if you're an experienced surfer just be careful".

"There is now a fairly mild one-metre swell off Yeppoon which stills packs a bit of power and we are seeing the highest tides of the year, which can still produce strong rips and currents".

"That being said, offshore is going to be fairly rough with very strong currents and strong swells".
