Cool days and warm evenings
WET and cool days will lead into warm nights on the Tweed this autumn, as the La Nina weather pattern continues in the Pacific Ocean.
The Bureau of Meteorology's (BoM) latest seasonal outlook shows there is just a 35% chance the Tweed will exceed its median maximum temperature, and a 55% chance the area will exceed its median maximum rainfall.
While the days could be cool, the nights are predicted to be warmer than usual, with a 65% chance of exceeding the median minimum temperature. Warm conditions in the Indian Ocean have also influenced the prediction.
Meanwhile, the La Nina event that has dominated the Australian climate for the past nine months has passed its peak.
BoM's climate models suggest there will be a return to neutral conditions in this coming winter. The threat of cyclones remains, as activity is at its peak in February and March.
