A severe weather warning is in place for the Illawarra and South Coast with wind gusts of up to 100kph expected throughout the day.
Late yesterday the Bureau of Meteorology issued a warning for damaging winds across much of southeast NSW.
A trough and associated cold front are moving over eastern NSW to the Tasman Sea this morning.
A vigorous westerly airstream remains in the wake of this system, assisted by a deep low near Tasmania.
Illawarra State Emergency Service crews are yet to receive any calls for assistance, however a group of volunteers from Wollongong, Shellharbour, Kiama and Nowra have travelled to Sydney to assist.
Call the SES on 132 500 for emergency help in floods and storms.
