4 days of thunderstorms: 'Unsettled' weather coming our way

IT'S going to be warm, humid and rainy on the Northern Rivers, with four days of stormy conditions and temperatures hitting 30-plus degrees.

The Bureau of Meteorology says three separate weather systems are combining and feeding "increasing humidity across the state, generating unsettled and stormy conditions for the coming days".

"Thunderstorm activity is forecast to peak and become widespread on Friday and Saturday, as the low pressure system and its associated trough cross the state," BoM explains in its forecast.

"This will be followed closely by a cold front which looks set to enter the southwest on Saturday and then continue through to the northeast on Sunday, bringing significantly cooler conditions."

It's also going to be fairly warm with Friday's temperatures reaching around 30 degrees.

The temperature will drop slightly on Saturday, but Sunday is again expected to hit the 30-degree mark.
