A severe weather warning for damaging winds, gusting up to 90km/h, remains current for the Illawarra.
The Bureau of Meteorology says a trough associated with a low pressure system lying over the Tasman will move through NSW on Monday, bringing a resurgence of strong winds to the Illawarra.
Damaging winds are possible over parts of the Illawarra from Monday afternoon, easing by early Tuesday morning as the trough moves away to the north.
The BoM also forecasts a medium chance of showers and a maximum temperature of 15 degrees on Monday.
Large and powerful surf conditions are expected to be hazardous for coastal activities such as rock fishing, swimming and surfing.
The State Emergency Service advises that people should:
- Move vehicles under cover or away from trees.
- Secure or put away loose items around your house, yard and balcony.
- Keep at least 8 metres away from fallen power lines or objects that may be energised, such as fences.
- Report fallen power lines to either Ausgrid (131 388), Endeavour Energy (131 003), Essential Energy (132 080) or Evoenergy (131 093) as shown on your power bill.
