Wet weekend for Upper Hunter to continue November rain

AN already wet November is about to become even more so.

Following a few days of sunshine, the Bureau of Meteorology is predicting showers will return to the Upper Hunter this weekend, and continue into the new week.

A burst of late showers on Thursday evening is expected to set it off, with a very high chance of shower anticipated for Saturday and Sunday.

The downpour will likely accompany cool conditions, with temperatures not anticipated to exceed 30 degrees.

While the weather will be cool and rainy, people are reminded the UV index will remain high throughout the week – very high on Friday, and extreme on the weekend.

Sun damage can still occur during this time, so those venturing outdoors into the rain should maintain protection they would use on a hot same.
