Easing conditions have allowed fire crews to get the upper hand on bushfires in northeastern NSW that had earlier been fanned by strong winds.

The fires at Wrench Road in Ellangowan, Main Camp Road in West Bungawalbin and Peckhams Road in Ewingar were all downgraded on Sunday evening to advice level.

The first two bushfires are "being controlled" while the third incident - a grassfire at Ewingar in the Clarence Valley - is still considered "out of control".

All three fires had previously been rated more seriously at a watch and act level - with firefighters advising residents to follow their bushfire survival plans.

Windy conditions hampered crews' efforts earlier on Sunday with some wind gusts reaching up to 50km/h.

While those winds have now eased a high fire danger is forecast for Monday in the state's northeast.
