Temperatures are set to warm by several degrees from Monday as a high pressure system puts an end to the snow that transformed elevated areas into winter wonderlands on the weekend.
Forecaster at the Bureau of Meteorology Katarina Kovacevic estimated there was "at least a few centimetres" of snowfall at Barrington Tops on Saturday and Sunday, and on the higher peaks of the Liverpool Ranges, as well as snow flurries on sections near Murrurundi.
She said snowfall would likely continue into Sunday night but that would mark the end of the weekend's winter magic.
"A high pressure system will move across the state from Monday and that will bring settled conditions. We are not expecting any more snow at least for the remainder of the week," Ms Kovacevic said. "It should be three or four degrees warmer than the weekend."
Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, Port Stephens and Cessnock all reached maximums around the 15 degree mark on Sunday.
Daytime temperatures are expected to reach the high teens in most of the Hunter region from Monday.
SES spokesperson Jenni North said that apart from wind ripping open a hole in the roof of Westcott Presbyterian Aged Care in Stockton on Friday, she was not aware of "any other significant damage" due to snowfall and strong winds in the region.
Bureau of Meterology data showed wind gusts at Nobbys reached 72 kilometres an hour on Saturday afternoon and 74 km/h by 10.30am on Sunday. At Tocal wind gusts reached 76 km/h at 12.45pm on Saturday and fell to 69 km/h by 8.30am on Sunday. Wind speeds were less severe in Lake Macquarie, staying under 55 kilometres per hour.
Sub-zero temperatures at Barrington Tops National Park did not stop Hunter residents enjoying a snow day.
Toukley's Kristy West and her 13-year-old daughter Tilly Smith traveled with eight friends to the Polblue picnic area and campground on Saturday.
"None of us had seen snow fall before so were lucky because it was bucketing down," Ms West said.
Jessica Sullivan and Logan Harvey, of Blackalls Park, were two of the brave souls that camped in "four or five inches" of snow on Saturday night.
The pair said they had never seen the Polblue area so busy, estimating there were almost 100 other people there.
"This morning when we woke up it was 1.2 degrees in the car," Ms Sullivan said.
National Parks and Wildlife and police closed the road to the campground on Sunday morning, due to icy conditions. It remained closed throughout the day.
Hazardous surf conditions will continue from Sunday afternoon into Monday.
