Riverboats Music Festival goers can expect a cool change with possible showers this weekend.

As Sweet Jean kicks off the festival at 6.30pm today, temperatures are only expected to reach 28°C and a shower or two is predicted.

A high of 30°C is forecast for tomorrow, with a shower or two in the morning and winds to increase to 25km/h during the day.

Sunday will be sunny, with a top of 29°C and similar wind conditions.

With thousands of people expected over the three days, Echuca police will be making sure people are well-behaved.

Senior Sergeant Mick Carroll said there would be a visible police presence at the festival, with uniformed and plain-clothed officers walking around.

‘‘We will roster on the most we can, but it won’t be like the police presence we had at the Southern 80,’’ Sen. Sgt Carroll said.

‘‘We’ve always found the crowd who comes to this event is very good.’’
