Temperatures across the Macleay are set to rise to mid-to-high 20s this week before reaching the low 30s early next week.
A cold front has seen the temperature drop to a top of 21 degrees the past two days, but a strong breeze meant the temperature felt much colder.
However, the cold front will pass by tomorrow (Thursday September 12) with temperatures predicted to reach 27 degrees on a sunny day.
On Friday and Saturday, a high of 26 degrees is expected, with both days to be sunny with only a slim chance of rain.
Temperatures are expected to rise to 28 degrees on Sunday before reaching 31 degrees on Monday and 30 degrees on Tuesday.
In slightly positive news, there is a 40 per cent chance of rain on Tuesday, albeit only between 1-5mm predicted.
