WINTER officially starts tomorrow and forecasters are predicting a warmer but also wetter than average season.

Temperatures are expected to be above average especially at night due to warmer sea-surface temperatures in the Indian Ocean.

For the next week, the Bureau of Meteorology has posted a severe weather warning, with up to 150mm of rain a possibility for the Far North Coast as well as strong winds and rough seas.

Flooding is a possibility between Sunday and Tuesday.

However, things could be worse.

One hundred and one years ago today The Northern Star reported that following a cold westerly wind, it snowed in Lismore.

It only lasted a couple of minutes, but two witnesses swore it happened.
