There have been reports of huge dust storms in the south-west of New South Wales as winds whip up dirt from dry paddocks.

The Bureau of Meteorology says there are strong easterly winds in excess of 35 kilometres per hour going right through the ranges, northern tablelands and central tablelands, with the strongest winds in Wagga.

The ABC has received calls describing large red dust swirls in some parts of the state making it difficult to see for more than half a kilometre in front.

The Bureau's Ellie Sparks says the winds are coming from two low systems, one in the bight.

"The other low system is near Queensland and the winds are squeezing there between the low off the Queensland coast and the southern Tasman," she said.

"We have these strong easterlies on the NSW coast turning around to strong easterlies over southern parts of the state."
