STRONG winds across much of the weekend kept local emergency service crews busy, but the sun is mostly set to shine for the rest of the week.
Friday brought the strongest gusts of winds to Tamworth since February, reaching up to 76 kilometres per hour, while gusts reaching 61 kilometres per hour were clocked on Saturday, according to Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) data.
The gusty conditions were enough to wreak havoc on several local homes.
The State Emergency Service (SES) Deputy Zone Commander for the region Superintendent Mitch Parker said crews across the New England responded to about 15 call outs for help during the wild winds.
Superintendent Parker said there were a number of incidents where branches had fallen onto dwellings or winds had ripped off roofs.
"We had a branch fall on a caravan at Nundle, we had a couple of roofs blown off around Tamworth, and we had a tree down on a Tamworth shed as well," he said.
"This is going to keep happening because we're marking the start of the storm season, the high winds are what we're worried about ... but we're monitoring the weather all the time," he said.
Things have well and truly calmed down for now though. The BoM forecast shows Tamworth locals are in for a sunny and warm few days, with only the hint of a shower mid-week.
The weekend is set to be a sunny one, with temperatures expected to soar to 30 degrees.
