The Bureau of Meteorology said the conditions are due to a "complex low pressure system which is deepening off the southern and central New South Wales coast in the wake of a cold front, bringing cool, wet and windy conditions to parts of the east".

"This low is expected to linger offshore for a number of days affecting the state's weather, before a high pressure ridge takes over at the start of next week.

"Depending on the intensity and movement of this low, there is potential for some coastal areas, particularly central parts, to experience severe weather in the form of heavy rain, vigorous winds and large surf."
