It’ll be a weather medley

THE WEATHER, in another bout of moodiness, has seen the weekend splashed with both rain and sunshine.

Saturday saw the region receive rain - and a lot of it - causing many sporting events and weekend markets to be cancelled.

According to the Bureau of Meteorology, Lismore recorded 43mm of rainfall on Saturday alone, Casino received 41mm, while Ballina marked 9mm.

The heavy rain made for some dangerous conditions, with the SES being called out to a "handful" of jobs, said Richmond Tweed SES Operations Manager, Chad Ellis.

He said that on Saturday their crews were called to a number of leaky roofs around Tweed, Murwillumbah and Ocean Shores, as well as a tree down near The Channon.

He said these incidents were a reminder for residents to take the time to do some maintenance around their homes, such as trimming trees, clearing loose items in their year, and servicing their gutters, as well as always having a storm safety kit at the ready.

"A lot of our leaky roof (jobs) are due to gutters not been cleaned," Mr Ellis said.

Luckily for some, however, he said the local SES teams do a fantastic job and are always at the ready when local residents need help.

But then yesterday, the region was blessed with some sunshine.

However, before you get too excited, know that it's not meant to hang around for long.

In fact, showers are expected every day this weekend right across the Northern Rivers, so make sure you keep an umbrella close by.

Temperatures in Byron Bay are set to stay between 18-26 degrees Celsius until Friday before cooling down over the weekend to between 16-23.

Both Lismore and Ballina are set to see temperatures between 16-28 until Friday and between 15-24 over the weekend, while Casino will be 14-28 degrees Celsius through the week and 13-24 over the weekend.
