What a surprise: It's going to be a wet weekend at Bluesfest

GUMBOOTS, jackets and mini skirts are the suggested attire for this year's Bluesfest with the Bureau of Meteorology predicting rain from Good Friday during this year's festival.

Bureau forecaster Mohammed Nabi said while temperatures will be generally mild, Thursday and Monday look to be the best day's weather wise for music fans.

"On Thursday a moist onshore north easterly airflow will keep the weather mostly dry," he said.

"Thursday looks to be the best day with a chance of a shower or two at Byron Bay.

"Then a front travelling up the NSW coast is predicted to hit the Northern Rivers on Friday, with southerly winds driving the weather patterns over the long-weekend."

 

One consolation for festival goers is the showers will reduce the dust at the Tyagarah festival site.

Saturday and Sunday look to be the wettest, while temperatures will rise on Monday.
