Rain expected to last through the weekend

IT HAS been a while coming but Tweed had its first hint of significant rain in about three months.

A large cool change that was predicted earlier in the week has bought a significant amount of rain with it.

According to the Bureau of Meteorology, the rain would ease tonight but rainy conditions were expected right through the weekend.

Temperatures are also expected to remain lower than average with maximums of 23 to 24 degrees until Tuesday.

Nola Findlay took the chance for a bit of walking in the rain at Coolangatta soon after a storm passed over the region at about 2pm.

Boaties will have a rough time on the water with the bureau predicting strong wind warning for waters off Point Danger.

Wind is expected to reach 40 knots tonight and a swell of up to 4m predicted.
