After shivering through a week of frosty days and subzero mornings, Griffith residents can at least look forward to some warmer days ahead.
Weatherzone meteorologist Brett Dutschke predicts the temperature will steadily climb later in the week, culminating in some much-needed rain over the weekend.
He says Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday will have above-average maximum temperatures for this time of year, clocking in at about 17, 18, and 19 degrees respectively.
Then on Saturday afternoon a low pressure trough is expected to come in, bringing with it about 5 to 10 millimeters of rain for Griffith and the Riverina area.
Mr Dutcschke predicts Sunday will be a cold one, reaching about a 13 degree maximum temperature.
He said the following week is looking like it'll be a lot drier and cooler, and he says Griffith residents should expect light patches of frost on their gardens in the coming mornings.
