STRONG to gale-force winds are predicted to continue with another severe weather warning issued for the region.

The Bureau of Meteorology alert was issued early on Thursday morning with damaging winds predicted to sweep through the Central Tablelands, South Coast, Southern Tablelands and South West Slopes.

The damaging winds are expected to average 55 to 65km/h, with gusts in excess of 90km/h.

The winds are part of a series of cold fronts skimming across southeast Australia. The last of these fronts will clear the region later on Thursday, after which conditions will gradually ease.
