From fires on the coast to snow on the ranges the spring weather seesaw is in full swing across the Mid North Coast.

Above average temperatures climbed to the mid 30s in some centres on Wednesday and the heat, on top of a prolonged dry period, contributed to fire activity in the region.

A fire in the Tuncurry area came very close to properties on Wednesday night...see photos from the fire.

On Thursday temperatures dropped dramatically with snow falling on the Barrington Tops.

The seesaw looks set to continue with warm, dry conditions continuing into the weekend and the temperatures climbing again early next week.

Friday will see temperatures across the Mid North Coast reach the low to mid 20s with very little chance of rain.  Kempsey is likely to top the charts predicted to reach 24 with Port Macquarie and Forster likely to reach 22.

A strong wind warning has been issued for Friday across the Macquarie Coast and Hunter Coasts

Temperatures will climb on Saturday to the mid 20s and Sunday will be slightly cooler.  

By Tuesday temperatures are set to climb once again to the high 20s and low 30s.  Coffs Harbour and Taree are likely to reach 28 on Tuesday with Kempsey climbing to 30.
