The Bureau expect the wild weather could affect Perisher Valley, Charlotte Pass, Thredbo, Cabramurra, Selwyn and Khancoban.
The Bureau said a strong high pressure system near Tasmania and a low pressure system off the NSW coast was driving the strong easterly winds.
The wind is expected to ease throughout the day.
Wet and cold weather which hit the ACT on Friday afternoon will hang around for the rest of the week with the temperature set to reach just 12 degrees on Monday.
