Weather warning still in place
AFTER yesterday's devastating weather conditions, it is not surprising Northern Rivers residents are nervous about what's to come.
But after the area's recent battering, the NSW Bureau of Meteorology is playing down concerns of more freak weather, with forecasts showing the low-pressure system is wending its way south to the Mid North Coast.
The Bureau's message: keep your raincoat handy but don't fret about another thunderstorm with tornado potential. Lennox Head has seen the worst of it, although a severe weather warning is still in place.
“It's likely we'll see more rain, especially south of Ballina,” said duty forecaster Jake Phillips.
“But, by Friday the stormy weather should shift south to the Mid North Coast.”
The forecast for the Northern Rivers was for cloudy periods and showers but unlikely to cause the kind of devastation we've already seen.
