A number of flights in and out of Sydney Airport have been cancelled as strong winds lash the city.

Flights en route from Melbourne to Sydney are being cancelled due to the extreme weather.

A polar vortex is heading up the east coast with damaging winds of up to 90km/h expected across the state.

Sydney Domestic Airport has just one runway open, with a spokesperson telling Ray Hadley there have been 64 flights cancelled.

Customers are being urged to check their flight status throughout the day.

The State Emergency Service is in full swing with trees brought down on homes in the Blue Mountains and Illawarra.

Weatherzone meteorologist Craig MacIntosh says the wild weather is going to continue all day.

It’s good news for skiers with Thredbo having seen 77cm of snow fall in the last 24 hours.
