FOR those Hastings residents who have been reaching for the winter woolies there is some good news ahead.
From tomorrow the area is expected to receive some rain - which, according to the Bureau of Meteorology, might take the chill out of the air. Duty observer Alison Skinn said the expected cloud cover would help retain some warmth.
“That cloud cover will bring nighttime temperatures up from around 5 degrees to eight,” she said. “So it should be a little bit warmer.”
The lowest recorded temperature for June was 0.7 back in 1986 on the 22nd. The closest the area has come to the record so far was on Thursday morning when the temperature dropped to 2.2 degrees.
With five days still to go in the month, Port Macquarie has already recorded 200mm of rain surpassing the average of 133mm.
But Mrs Skinn said the expected rain for the rest of the week would not be enough to have too much more of a bearing on the June total.
