THE welcome rainfall that drenched the region in recent days may have left, but a thick blanket of fog took its place on Thursday morning.
Much of the region was shrouded in the fog, which took well into the morning to lift.
The fog comes after four days of consistent rain across the region, which according Weatherzone, could be followed by more rain next week.
Weatherzone's Ben Domensino said " there are early signs that another upper-level trough will cross south-eastern Australia at some point next week."
"There is still quite a bit of uncertainty around the strength and timing of this system, although it should bring rain to NSW at some stage next week," he said.
"Exactly when and how much rain will fall is too difficult to predict just yet."
Next week's predicted rain would come after the Bureau of Meteorology recorded varying rainfalls across the region earlier in the week.
BOM's Tamworth Airport weather station recorded 25mm of rainfall from Saturday to Tuesday.
However, regions around the Dungowan, Keepit and Chaffey Dams received greater falls, which helped improve dam levels to 100 per cent, 21.3 per cent and 16.1 per cent respectively.
