Dry July hits the sky as sun bids rain goodbye

LIGHT rainfall across the Valley over the past few days is unlikely to last, according to the Bureau of Meteorology.

Since Sunday, Grafton has recorded just 0.7mm while Yamba enjoyed a more generous soaking with 11.4mm to 9am yesterday.

While it's been a welcome change for our gardens and sports fields, the week ahead is looking dry and sunny.

Today the forecasters are offering up sunshine, with light winds becoming westerly 15-20kmh in the late afternoon and light in the evening.

Overnight temperatures will fall to between 5 and 8, up to 20 degrees during the day.

The sunshine is expected to continue until next Tuesday with no sign of any significant rain falling over the Clarence Valley in the next week at least.
