'VERY HOT': Summer strikes hard, chance of storms every day

IT WAS pretty nice to see a drop in temperatures on Monday, but what can we expect for the rest of the week?

It is summer, so it's no surprise it will be hot, but according to the Bureau of Meteorology, Lismore's temperatures are set to be all over the place.

On Wednesday, temperatures are set to rise 9C from yesterday's 27C, hitting 36C.

The BoM forecast explains: "A high pressure system over the Great Australian Bight has pushed milder air across most of the state, though it will remain hot to very hot over the far northern districts today (Wednesday), ahead of a weak southerly change over the far north of the state this evening."

But the roller coaster won't end there, dropping back to 27C on Thursday, before climbing back to 37C on the weekend.

There's also the chance of a thunderstorm every day up until at least Saturday, according to BoM.

Today will be cloudy, and there will be a 40 per cent chance of rain on Thursday and Friday - but even then, the prediction is only for up to 3mm of rain.

The minimum temperatures are what can make it hard to find any relief from the hot weather, and this week, they are not going to fall below 16C.

On Sunday, Lismore's temperatures reached 39.6 at the airport weather station, Casino hit 40.0, Evans Head reached 38.7, and Murwillumbah 36.2.
