Temperatures forecast to drop for the weekend ahead

NORTHERN Riverians may need to get out their gum boots and woolies this weekend, as colder temperatures and rain are forecast to hit the area.

Tomorrow morning a cold front that has been moving across the state the last couple of days, should reach the north-eastern corner.

It’s predicted to hit us late morning or around midday bringing with it fresh winds from a south-southeasterly direction, according to the Bureau of Meteorology.

“There is also a moderate chance of rain,” a spokesperson for the bureau said.

“The change will bring plenty of cloud and fresh winds and the temperatures should drop from low 30s and high 20s down to mid 20s.”

On Sunday the winds will remain from a south-easterly direction and a higher chance of rainfall is also predicted.

“There should be plenty of coastal shower activity for the area through most of the day,” the bureau spokersperson said.

“This is more likely in the morning, however, through the day it will still remain cloudy.”

For people wanting to know the weather for the Easter long weekend, a more accurate prediction will be made early next week.
