Brief respite as dry spell lingers
TWEED residents should expect isolated showers today and tomorrow before dry weather returns.
Bureau of Meteorology observer Simon Evans said below-average rainfall was predicted for the Northern Rivers in the next few months.
“From November to January the chance of exceeding the average figures is about 30 per cent,” Mr Evans said.
“Drier than normal conditions are favoured for much of NSW.”
Monday and Tuesday nights' downpours and isolated thunderstorms were due to a trough passing through the area.
“There's been a trough over the north of the state for the last few days and this has moved up the coast,” Mr Evans said.
“This has caused some really heavy rain all along the coast. A lot of it has been right on the coast.”
According to the bureau, Murwillumbah received 131mm of rain in the past seven days, which was the fifth highest figure in the Northern Rivers behind Alstonville on 165mm.
Banora Point - 30mm
Bilambil - 40mm
Bray Park - 19mm
Chillingham - 40mm
Kingscliff - 12.5mm
Tweed Heads - 30m
