Weekend forecast: Wet and windy

THERE may be a break in the rain but it wont last too long.

The Bureau of Meteorology is forecasting a 70 per cent chance of rain most likely for this morning, becoming less likely late this afternoon and evening.

Some areas had high catchments of rainfall over the past 24 hours, including Mullumbimby with 45mm and 34mm for Byron Bay.

Temperatures expected to sit in the low to mid 20s.

Ballina 7.6mm

Byron Bay 34mm

Casino 3.4mm
