A climate scientist says the NSW storms are a sign of things to come as global temperatures rise.

Devastating storms in NSW are a sign of things to come as global temperatures rise, a climate scientist predicts.

The eight-year gap between a one-in-100 year storm in 2007 and another this week shows extreme events are occurring more frequently, says Professor Matthew England from the Climate Change Research Centre.

"Records are being broken far more often than they should be," he told ABC radio on Friday.
