The Bureau of Meteorology has issued a severe weather warning as wild winds lash the state.  

The winds are due to a low-pressure system over the southern Tasman Sea.

It is currently moving over the southeastern and central eastern parts of NSW today.

Winds will turn southerly on Saturday and remain strong along the coast as the low moves further east.

Winds on Sydney Harbour have just been recorded at 106km/h!


 A window has also been busted at Barangaroo Towers.

The water on the Harbour is also extremely choppy and people have been advised to enter with caution. 



A severe weather warning has been issued for the whole day.

  • Move vehicles under cover or away from trees.
