Heather Gartshre Narrabri  weather

Tomorrow is going to be warm to hot thanks to a northerly airflow seabreeze which will fan the coast. Conditions are also going to become unsettled with inland showers across the north west and afternoon storms developing on the northern ranges thanks to a slow moving trough. That’s going to linger into next week so more rain is expected, with better falls on the way during the early to middle part of next week. It will remain fine for the Hunter to kick start the weekend. Things are looking good for boating, but beware of the gusty afternoon seabeezes. Only small waves for surfers, with the northern corners best. Read More »
