According to the Bureau of Meteorology it will be a showery week for NSW with a few showers about central and northern parts of the coast and adjacent ranges, more frequent along the coastal fringe.

There is a chance of a thunderstorm along the coastal fringe north from the Hunter, and in the northeast.

The heaviest rainfall day looks set to be Wednesday and Thursday with 10mm forecast for Lismore and Ballina each day, 15mm for Byron Bay.

Temperatures will also drop a few degrees with overnight temperatures across the region falling to between 9 and 12 with daytime temperatures reaching around 20.

BoM’s weather situation reads: “A high pressure system over the Bight currently extends a ridge into New South Wales, while a low pressure trough lies just off the coast.

“The trough is expected to decay early in the new week as the high makes its way to the Tasman Sea.”
