The NSW State Emergency Service (SES) is urging all Mid North Coast residents to get ready for the possibility of severe storms starting early Friday afternoon (October 29) through to Saturday evening.
The warning extends south to the Hunter and Central Coasts.
The Bureau of Meteorology is predicting severe storms with the likelihood of large hail and damaging winds which have the possibility of becoming destructive.
The Bureau has also advised that these storms have the potential to develop supercells within them.
With the possibility of stormy wet weather on the way, NSW SES Zone Commander Steve Patterson urges residents to prepare their homes.
"While the sun is out, bring in or secure any outdoor items in the yard or on the balcony, check your gutters are clear and your roof is in good condition, trim any overhanging branches and put together a home emergency kit in case of power outages," Mr Patterson said.
Flash flooding is always a risk with severe storms.
NSW SES urges residents and visitors to take care when driving in wet weather on the local roads and especially if you are driving in areas where low lying causeways overflow and are dangerous to cross when flooded.
It's important that drivers slow down as roads may have floodwater, trees, branches or debris covering them.
The Hunter, Central Coast and Mid North Coast SES Units are currently on standby and prepared for any calls for assistance.
NSW SES and Bureau of Meteorology are continuing to monitor the weather system closely.
