The Hunter is about to receive an early dose of Spring weather with temperatures climbing into the early 20s over the next few days.
While overnight temperatures will continue to dip into single figures, daytime temps will be much warmer.
A top of 21 is forecast for Tuesday, 24 for Wednesday, 19 Thursday and 20 degrees Friday.
But it will be over the weekend that the weather takes a turn for the best with tops of 21 and 26 forecast for Saturday and Sunday respectively.
So soak up the sun while it lasts because showers are forecast for next week.
