It's time to bring out the winter woollies

THERE has been a visible rise in cardigan or jumper-wearing on the Northern Rivers over the last week, and that (highly scientific) figure is set to jump even further, thanks to a coming cold front.

A high pressure system near Tasmania is extending a ridge along the New South Wales coast, the Bureau of Meteorology explained.

This high will move over the Tasman Sea during Saturday and weaken and the next cold front is expected to cross the state on Monday.

At least since it's the Easter long weekend we all have a good excuse to snuggle up on the couch with a nice mug of hot chocolate, right?

Winds southwesterly 15 to 20 km/h tending southerly 15 to 25 km/h in the morning then becoming light in the late evening.
