Get ready to batten down the hatches and turn on the heaters, with some strong winds and cooler temperatures on the way to Eden over the next few days.

The Bureau of Meteorology has issued a strong wind warning for Eden coastal waters over Tuesday and Wednesday, with winds expected to peak at 50km/h on Tuesday.

Partly cloudy weather is forecast for the remainder of the working week, and it may be a tough task to drag yourself out from beneath the covers on Thursday and Friday, with overnight temperatures to drop as low as 3°C on both days.
