School holiday weather update across the Northern Rivers

THE weather is taking a turn after a day of sunshine with thunderstorms expected to roll in this evening.

The week ahead isn't looking so great in Lismore either, with showers expected every day up until Friday.

The story is similar for those who travelled as far south as Grafton and as far north as The Gold Coast for the holidays, with most places predicting six days in a row of showers.

There is some positive news, however. While rain is expected to fall every day, tomorrow's prediction is as low as 1mm and the worst days predict up to 10mm in Lismore.

Byron and Ballina rain predictions climb a little bit higher with the worst day, Wednesday, expecting up to 15mm.

According to the Bureau of Statistics website there will be some relief from the 30-degree days.

From Tuesday onwards the daily temperatures will fluctuate between 24 and 26 degrees in Lismore, Byron and Tweed Heads.

Overnight lows will stay between a very pleasant 15-16 degrees in Lismore and 19-20 degrees in Byron.

As for severe storm warnings, there is one in place for the Northern Tablelands, but north from Grafton looks all clear.
