Rainy weather to continue

THE gloomy morning which greeted Tweed residents yesterday is expected to continue for the rest of this week.

The overcast conditions resulted in 25mm of rain for Tweed Heads, the highest falls for the month.

It wasn’t that cold, at least compared to earlier in the month, but for residents like Tenille Sullivan, 32, the weather was welcome.

Wearing a colourful beanie, black jacket and jeans, she delights in the opportunity to get out her winter clothes.

“I love the wet weather, it makes my fruit and veggie gardens grow,” she said.

“And I can make sure I get all rugged up and pull out a beanie.”

Though the minimum temperature yesterday was 15 degrees, far hotter than on June 12 when it was 5.2 degrees.

Bureau of Meteorology forecaster Tony Auden said yesterday’s showers were caused when two areas of high wind met and sent moisture to the Tweed area.

The showers lessened as the day wore on as strong south-easterly winds blew away the showers, but it remained overcast.

He said this time of year people could expect days of sunshine to be interspersed with overcast days, with cold nights and occasional rain.

Forecasts predict isolated showers would clear tomorrow, with Saturday set to be fine. But rain could return to the Northern Rivers on Sunday.
