Foul weather is set to hit NSW, with flooding, heavy rain and strong coastal winds forecast across the state.

As a low pressure system rolls north along the NSW coast on Wednesday, thunderstorms and heavy rain may lead to flash flooding in some regions.

The Bureau of Meteorology has issued minor flooding, severe weather and costal wind warnings across the state.

‘Moderate to heavy rain is expected to fall over the NSW mid-north coast and northern rivers districts,’ BOM said in its flood watch statement.

There is a chance of minor flooding in the Bellinger, Orara, Richmond, Wilsons and Brunswick River valleys, BOM said.

A minor flood warning has been issued by for the upper Paroo River at Willara Crossing, where a peak of 1.3 metres is expected on Wednesday.

Rain fell heavily in the Illawarra region in the south overnight, with Robertson receiving 99mm and local flooding making driving difficult.

The SES advises people to be careful of flood waters, particularly when driving, and keep clear of creeks and storm  drains.

Strong marine winds will also whip the Port Macquarie, Coffs Harbour and Byron Bay coasts as the heavy weather moves north, BOM warned.
