The Rural Fire Service is urging people across the region to prepare for extreme fire weather on Thursday, October 10.

The Bureau of Meteorology is predicting hot, dry winds and high temperatures.

The RFS says maximum temperatures are forecast to be up to 10 degrees warmer than average for October, reaching 40 degrees in some parts.

Strong winds, with gusts of more than 70 kilometres an hour, are also predicted.

RFS Commissioner, Shane Fitzsimmons, says Fire and Rescue NSW and National Parks and Wildlife are preparing for these conditions.

He says a Bush Fire Survival Plan is vital in these conditions.

"It's important that residents prepare their property and clear it of fuel such as leaves in gutters and wood piles near buildings," he said.
