Ferries running between Circular Quay and Manly have been cancelled in both directions as Sydney gets set for an onslaught of wild weather this afternoon.

A car hit a power pole and flipped over this morning, closing part of the Great Western Highway, briefly shutting one of two eastbound lanes on the highway at Clifton Avenue in Faulconbridge.

Chifley Road is still closed in both directions as traffic diversions continue between parts of Lithgow and Bell via the main highways and Station Street.
Some local roads are now safe to drive on in Oberon but others including Jenolan remain out of bounds.
Earlier this morning, about five centimetres of snow settled on Katoomba, Blackheath and surrounding areas this morning, the Bureau of Meteorology said.

Heavy winds are being felt along the south coast, averaging 60 to 70 km/h with peak gusts in excess of 90km/h.
