Parts of NSW will face severe fire danger and heat records could be broken during a hot, dry and windy day across the state.
Severe fire danger ratings and total fire bans will be in place for the Far North Coast, North Coast, Greater Hunter, Northern Slopes, New England and North Western NSW on Monday.
The rating will be very high in the Central Ranges, also subject to a total fire ban.
A NSW Rural Fire Service spokesman on Sunday said warm and windy conditions were likely to extend into Tuesday.
While Bourke sweltered through a 40C day and several areas set new October heat records on Sunday, all NSW bushfires remained at the lowest alert level in the evening.
Bureau of Meteorology forecaster Gabrielle Woodhouse said the heat should shift farther north on Monday, giving the south a bit of a reprieve.
"Broadly, across that northeastern quarter of the state tomorrow we're looking at a number of places currently forecast to reach early-season (heat) records," she told AAP on Sunday.
