CLOUD cover will bring slightly warmer temperatures to the Upper Hunter this week, with a touch of rainfall expected during the second half of the week.
Locals will wake up to morning fog and patches of frost today and tomorrow, before a westerly system begins to makes it way over the Hunter on Wednesday.
The system is expected to last until Friday and will bring limited patches of rainfall to the Upper Hunter, with Scone expected to receive between three and five millimetres daily.
The Northern Tablelands are likely to receive more rain activity, so places like Murrurundi may see rainfall totals reach between 20 and 30 millimetres.
Cold upper atmosphere air will follow the systems departure on Saturday, creating a slight drop in weekend temperatures and the potential for snow on the Barrington Tops.
Due to limited rainfall, only a light dusting is predicted on the Barrington at this stage.
The Glenbawn Dam level is currently sitting at 60.7 percent capacity, a 0.6 percent increase since last week.
A maximum temperature of 17 today in Scone.
