WEATHER: Southerly expected after day of high temps

HEATWAVE conditions have hit the Northern Rivers with full force but there may be some relief.

Highest temperatures recorded yesterday were as follows:

  • Ballina 32.1 deg at 2.44pm
  • Byron 26.6 deg at 12.54pm
  • Casino 38.1 deg at 4.59pm
  • Evans Head 36.3 deg at 1.50pm
  • Lismore 36.5 deg at 3.46pm

Today will see more high maximum temperatures but with a trough of low pressure on the Mid North Coast associated with a cold front crossing the Tasman Sea expected to continue moving north along the coast today, it will bring a milder southerly change which will reach the Queensland border during the afternoon.

Today's maximum temperatures around the region will be

  • Ballina 33
  • Byron 31
  • Lismore 35

There is a medium chance of showers and even a thunderstorm.

A maximum temperature of 43 degrees is still predicted for this coming Saturday.
