The old song and dance continues for the north with scattered showers and thunderstorms about the northern districts and expected to stay that way for the next 3-4 days. Over the early part of next week we will see the humidity spread down the Stuart Highway and introduce showers and thunderstorms from this time next week over southern and central districts.
The weather early than usual with the build up this year as a bumper wet season looks set to unfold for 2021/22.
Lets take a look at the shorter term.
Rainfall next 10 days
The rainfall again scattered, random most afternoons and evening with the diurnal cycle over the northern tropics. Over the southern and central areas, it should be mostly dry ahead of moisture sweeping south during the early part of next week. A trough deepening over SA may start to kick off showers and storms for southern areas from mid next week extending throughout later next week.
A broader look at the NT.
Thunderstorm Forecast Friday
Thunderstorms once again a risk over the Top End with the most active weather between 2-10pm. Thunderstorms likely to fire up on wind convergence inland of the coast and along a weak trough sitting over the base of the Top End. Gusty winds and heavy rainfall leading to flash flooding is possible.
