& # 39; The NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service recommends postponing travel inland until conditions improve & # 39 ;, BOM warned.
The cold front comes after the brutal wind caused a tree to fall in the Blue Mountains suburb of Katoomba on Thursday evening.
Mother-of-four Dearne Fulcher, 50, was driven by her son Dylan when the tree hit their Volvo, on Victoria Street around 7 p.m.
Mrs. Fulcher was killed while Dylan, 20, suffered horrific injuries and was flown to Westmead Hospital in western Sydney.
Another three people are dead and two were rescued when a yacht sank from Newcastle for Thursday.
A catamaran with five on board capsized in rough seas 13 km from Stockton Beach at around 10 a.m.
Marine rescue volunteers and a Westpac helicopter flew to an emergency signal and found a 40-year-old man and a 16-year-old girl clinging to the sinking boat.
Paramedics brought them to safety when rescuers found three adults dead in the water in the chaotic and & # 39; very confronting & # 39; scene.
The man and the girl were taken to John Hunter Hospital where they are treated for hypothermia.
