Storm clouds build with hopes of steady rain

AS A DAY of humidity hopefully builds into precipitation this evening, there are hopes there may be some relief from the North Coast's spring dry spell.

The last decent falls recorded on the Coffs Coast happened in August in what has been one of the driest springs on record.

The Bureau of Meteorology's three-month outlook for November to January shows the Coffs Coast at a 65% chance of below average rainfall.

With thunderstorms tipped to roll over the Dorrigo plateau later this afternoon, Weatherzone is forecasting a 90% chance of between 5-10mm of rain.

The rain looks set to fall between 6pm and midnight.

Weatherzone is forecasting further thunderstorms tomorrow with a 90% likelihood of between 10-20mm of rain.

The Bureau of Meteorology's Grafton radar at 8.30pm.
