Emergency services across the region are bracing for an uptick in action caused by the wet and wild weather lashing Dubbo and the surrounding area.
At least one property on Tamworth Street has already been struck by a fallen tree on Friday afternoon, with gusting winds bringing down a weakened tree.
The tree smashed the rear windscreen of a nearby car.
Crews on the ground at the scene of the incident are already anticipating an uptick in action over the course of the day as people return home after work.
Residents in Wellington and Geurie also suffered power outages.
According to weather reports, wind speeds of up to 54 kilometres an hour and gusts of 82 kilometres an hour were recorded on Friday by BOM, peaking around midday, with 3.8mm of rain falling between 9am and 4pm adding to the recent relief for farmers in the regions.
Residents are advised to be on the look out for telltale signs of weakened and root damaged trees, with severe leaning or dead and decaying branches the typical warnings to be wary of.
