Pianists fight off frozen fingers
IT'S no wonder Charlotte Ringland had trouble getting her fingers moving to tickle the ivories yesterday at the Lower Clarence Music Eisteddfod.
A minimum of four degrees was recorded at the weather research station at Trenayr yesterday morning, while it dipped as low as one degree at the Grafton Airport.
Weatherzone meteorologist Dr Melissa Mackellar said while the maximum temperatures this week were average at about 20 degrees, the lows were a little colder than usual.
But with rain on the way things should warm slightly.
"They will be heaviest near the coast, generally about 5-10mm," she said.
"It will be pretty wet towards the end of the week.
"It's looking like showers right through until early next week."
Dr Mackellar said Grafton had received about 36.4mm of rain so far this month, with the June average about 70.5mm.
