The temperature across the Hastings on Saturday is expected to tip 29 degrees on the coast and deliver clear and sunny conditions.
There is the possibility of severe thunderstorms across parts of northeast NSW.
On Sunday, September 16, the front will produce a major temperature drop that is likely to see many maximums drop from the high 20s and 30s, to the teens and low 20s.
The Hastings is likely to return to a cooler day with a top of 19 degrees and a minimum of 8 overnight.
