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.
