Weather outlook: What's in store for the Northern Rivers

FOLLOWING a weekend of intense heat, many across the Northern Rivers are hoping for a slight reprieve.

If it's a small drop in temperatures you're wishing for, you may be in luck.

While the heat isn't going to just disappear (we are heading into summer, after all), temperatures aren't going to be as high as they have been recently.

The Bureau of Meteorology explained that a complex low pressure system was over the southern Tasman Sea extending a trough over eastern NSW.

This low will continue to move southeast today, with a high pressure system moving slowly east in its wake over southeastern Australia.

The next cold front is expected to move through the state late Friday.
