Illawarra was thrown about with strong winds on Wednesday and Thursday but residents can now look forward to a clear sky and sun on Saturday.
Winds subsided on Thursday afternoon.
Temperatures are expected to reach 23 degrees Celsius on Saturday which will be a shock from the 18 degrees Celsius on Friday.
State Emergency Services volunteers worked hard to remove fallen branches, repaired broken roofs and even saved ducklings from a drain.
NSW SES workers from the Kiama unit were called to an unusual job after receiving reports there was an anxious mother duck next to a drain in Gerringong on Wednesday.
Her ducklings had fallen into the drain and were unable to get out.
Volunteers searched nearby stormwater pits but were unable to locate the ducklings.
The Gerringong Rural Fire Brigade were called to assist, and used water to encourage the ducks to move to a higher section of the drain where they could be easily accessed.
Once the three ducklings were sighted, they were carefully removed from the stormwater drain and were reunited with the mother duck.
There were dozens of calls for assistance as wind battered the Illawarra on Wednesday.
Wollongong SES unit's storm damage operators worked with Fire and Rescue NSW on Wednesday evening to secure a wind damaged building adjacent to the railway lines at Scarborough.
Crews were worried the debris from the disused building would fall onto the nearby railway line so emergency workers worked quickly to tied down all loose material.
Wollongong was one of the worst hit regions in the state and crews mainly assisted with fallen trees and damaged roofs.
A severe weather warning for damaging surf is still in place for the Illawarra coast.
Waves of five to seven metres were expected in the surf zone, may lead to localised damage and coastal erosion along the New South Wales coast today and early Friday.
