Tomorrow cloud increasing for the Hunter, southern parts of the NW and MNC with late rain developing. The large cloud band will engulf much of the region on Saturday with the rain spreading north across the region on Sunday

WEATHER UPDATE: RAIN EVENT ENDING

This current rain event is coming to a close but there is still some sting left in its tail. The upper level cold pool is passing over NSW triggering more shower, rain bands and storms. This will move through over night and the cold pool will then form into a low and move away from the coast across the Tasman. A trough will still linger over NSW. With so much moisture in the ground we can expect more patchy showers to form across the weekend especially after bursts of sunshine, but the rain event will come to an end. NE swell good for surfers with be a bit bumpy. Ok for boating.

WEATHER UPDATE: RAIN BUILDING

The current stalled trough causing the patchy wet weather across the region is going to deepen drawing more energy from the moist easterly winds. The scattered showers and storms will continue across the weekend. By the time we reach next week widespread inland rain is going to surge south across QLD into central western NSW. The drought affected local regions should benefit from this developing system. It could become the best rain event of the year to date. Moderate ENE swell to continue for surfers ok for boating.

WEATHER UPDATE: COWS NEED RAIN

PHOTO: Skippy at Diamond Head. Cattle prices are hitting new lows as farmers unload causing an over supply across the Northern Rivers. The drought hasn’t caused farmers to lose their sense of humour though. Saying. “It is so dry cows are producing powdered milk”. Storms developed across the northern ranges today and there’s more to come tomorrow. Every isolated shower and storm is important right now but it is a rain event that is needed. Scattered showers will form across the region in the coming days with more storm activity thanks to a stalled trough over NSW which may hang around until next week.

A stalled trough is going to flutter around across NSW in the coming days triggering patchy showers. Tomorrow the greatest chance of this shower development is going to happen across the northern NSW ranges and border towns once again. The area with the chance of showers occurring is going to grow as we move through the week. On Thursday moderate falls will be possible across the Northern Rivers out side of this, only small totals will be accumulated.

WEATHER UPDATE: PATCHY SHOWERS AND STORMS

This afternoon we saw lots of small showers and storm cells develop across the NW and ranges. This activity should ramp up further tomorrow and it is needed. It is incredibly dry inland. Rain is also desperately needed at the base of the ranges from Taree to Casino and the Upper Hunter could do with follow up rain as well. Our best chance is going to be over the next three days thanks to a slow moving trough and approaching front. The change coming through on the weekend will be the first solid system during the change of season period.

WEATHER UPDATE: STORMS ROLL IN

PHOTO: Storm pictures sent in by viewers  Storms have rolled back in across Sydney this afternoon moving towards the Central Coast and Hunter where they are expected to move through this evening. The passing front to the south is triggering the activity and will leave behind a trough which is set to trigger showers and storms along the Great Divide including the Northern Ranges and Upper Hunter on Thursday. This will produce some valuable follow up falls to the western slopes as well. Moderate falls will be patchy, only small totals are expected but are set to flow over into Friday.
