WITH the mercury expected to hit 32 degrees tomorrow, four northern beaches will have extended patrol hours to allow swimmers extra surf time.

Hours at Stanwell Park, Austinmer, Thirroul and Bulli beaches will be increased on Friday, with flags up until 6pm, and until 7pm at North Wollongong beach.

“Looking at the weather forecast, it’s tipped to be still 30 degrees at 5pm tomorrow, so we’re offering people the opportunity to cool off safely in the surf,” Wollongong Council’s Beach Services Manager Paul Dreghorn said.

“If you do fancy a swim, we ask people to make sure it’s at one of our patrolled beaches and between the flags. If there are no flags up, then there’s no swim.”
