Strong winds and savage storms are predicted to hit parts of NSW in a third consecutive day of wild weather tipped for the state.
On Saturday, severe thunderstorms lashed the NSW east coast while on Friday wild weather cut power to thousands of homes in Sydney and on the NSW central coast.
The severe storms yesterday arrived as emergency services crews were still working to restore electricity to thousands of impacted homes.

The Bureau of Meteorology predicted severe weather would return on Sunday, forecasting it to impact the central and south coast this afternoon and evening.
"The environment for severe thunderstorms still exists about the Northern Tablelands and parts of the Northern River but the rest of the thunderstorms we have to really wait and see if they develop," senior BOM forecaster Peter Zmijewski told the ABC.
Sydney is expected to dodge the worst of the predicted deluge, while the north coast stretching from Byron Bay to Port Macquarie is forecast to be worst affected.
