WEATHER: A BIT OF EVERYTHING FOR THE WEEK AHEAD

PHOTO: A big thanks to Renata Daniel for sending in this gem of Mount Sugarloaf.  Today another dry southerly tracked up the coast arriving at Newcastle just after lunch. This southerly will continue up the coast over night and tomorrow. There is not a great deal of shower or storm activity expected from this change. There’ll be a greater chance around the mountain areas near Coffs Harbour and the northern border ranges into SE QLD. The southerly will hold down the mercury but on Wednesday it will climb peaking on Thursday where we again see temperatures hit the high 30s for most. Another stronger southerly will come through at the end of Thursday evening.

Widespread 30 degree plus days will unfold with areas such as Moree likely to hit 40 degrees for at least three consecutive days. The heatwave will peak Friday with many locations set to reach the high 30s and low 40s. A southerly change will sweep through on Saturday, this will cool the coast considerably but inland there is only a 5 degree temperature drop across the NW Plains.

WEATHER: SWEET NOVEMBER RAIN

The current rain event has delivered the goods to the North West. Some large figures were accumulated overnight, adding to what has been a slow build up. A line that stretches from Walgett to Wee Waa, up to Moree and across to Inverell, received 50 to 80mm. Middle Creek outside of Inverell topped the list with and impressive 112mm. This is a game changer for the season across the region and there may be more inland rain on the way in the weeks to follow. Along the coast, the rain band cleared today but getting left behind will be a stalled trough.
