VIGOROUS WINDS DEVELOPING TODAY
Strong to gale force winds are forecast for parts of southern and western New South Wales later today and Thursday, as a cold front approaches from the west. This front will enter the state's southwest this evening, continuing through central and southeastern areas during Thursday.
DAMAGING WINDS for the following areas:
Illawarra, South Coast, Central Tablelands, Southern Tablelands, South West Slopes, Riverina, Lower Western, Upper Western, Snowy Mountains and Australian Capital Territory
For the Lower Western, Upper Western and Riverina districts: DAMAGING WINDS averaging 55 to 65 km/h, with gusts to 90 km/h, are possible this afternoon and evening. Gusts are most likely with thunderstorm activity.
These winds are likely to generate areas of raised dust, possibly thick, thereby reducing visibility.

Later this evening and into Thursday, DAMAGING WINDS may extend about the Southern Tablelands, southern parts of the Central Tablelands, and western parts of the Illawarra and South Coast districts.
Trees and branches in fire-affected areas may be more susceptible to falling than usual.
