Unfortunately the rain won't last long enough for you to need a brolly.

Update, 8am: WHAT'S that wet stuff coming out of the sky?

Yes, it's raining! 

Okay, so it's only sprinkling, but it's certainly nice to see even a tiny a bit of rain in the region.

Unfortunately it won't last - the Bureau of Meteorology says Lismore can expect the clouds to start clearing today.


Original story: IF YOU were kicking off the blankets last night, there was a good reason for it.

The temperature in Lismore only dropped to 18 degrees overnight, at 1.30am, and this morning it is already 23 degrees with a maximum of 25 expected.

In Ballina it got down to 18 degrees and Casino it was 19 degrees at 2.30am.

According to Weatherzone, the long term average minimum temperature in Lismore in September is 9.8 degrees - so it's definitely warmer than usual.

North-westerly winds are keeping it warm and we've had gusts of up to 35km/h this morning.

Expect a dramatic change tomorrow - the forecast is for the overnight minimum to get down to a chilly 4 degrees in Lismore.
