The color of the High Wind Alert indicates the severity of the event and the probability of the event occurring. Currently, the alert level is at Green, as the discontinuation was issued but the certainty is unlikely, meaning there is still a remote possibility of minor impacts associated with strong gusts.

At this level, there is negligible impact on human safety, assets are basically undamaged, and income earning potential is unaffected.

The Met Office is advising the public to monitor weather conditions and continue to monitor official sources for information, and follow the instructions of government officials.
