Northern Territory in September 2010: The North-South Dichotomy

This statement was prepared before all data for the period were available. This may affect some of the statistics presented.

The month of September proved to be very interesting in terms of temperature records. Darwin and the Top End experienced its warmest September on record while Alice Springs and other stations in the south had their coolest on record. Consistent with previous La Niña events, September proved to be wetter than normal for much of the NT.

  • Darwin recorded the warmest September on record.
  • Alice Springs recorded the coolest September on record.
  • Alice Springs Airport had wettest September since 1975.

La Niña influences the NT

The weather across the NT in September was driven primarily by changes in sea surface temperature as a result of the strong La Niña event that is in place. Above average sea surface tempeatures in the Timor and Arafura Seas and in the Eastern Indian Ocean brought above average rainfall to the whole region. The warm ocean surrounding the Top End helped to keep the temperatures in the Darwin-Daly districts above normal for most of the month. The La Niña conditions in place now are very similar to that of the 1998/1999 and the 1974/1975 La Niña events with comparable effects on the NT weather.

Rainfall

A few large rain events across the Territory early in the month led local media to declare an early end to the dry season. The wettest overall was 146.2 mm at Jervois most of which fell early in the month. The next wettest was The Garden which received 122.2 mm, this was followed by Leanyer with 118.6 mm most of which fell on the last day of the month. This was the highest total September rainfall on record for all of these sites. Other sites that received highest total September rainfall on record include Gove Airport, Yulara Aero, and Watarrka.

The wettest single day was September 4th; 81.0 mm fell at Foelsche Headland and 69.2 mm fell at The Garden . The next wettest was 66.0 mm at Ngayawili on the 20th.

The southern and western portions of the NT were especially wet. Alice Springs Airport experienced its wettest September since 1975. All sites in the Alice Springs District measured either very much above normal rainfall, or the wettest September on record.

Maximum temperature

Darwin Airport recorded the warmest September average maximum temperature on record at 33.9 °C which is 1.4 °C above normal and exceeds the previous record of 33.6 °C set in 1998.

The previous record coolest September in Alice Springs was 23.1 °C set in 1974.

Daily rainfall

Most values are the precipitation in the 24 hours to 9 am on the day indicated. Days marked with »» are part of a longer accumulation, which is marked like this on the final day. Values over 100 mm have been rounded to the nearest whole millimetre. Days marked with - have a rainfall report of zero; days left blank have no rainfall report (which often indicates no rain fell).
This table is very wide; you may have to scroll sideways to see all the days, and you may need to set the paper to 'landscape' to print.

Notes

A Monthly Climate Summary is prepared to list the main features of the weather in Northern Territory using the most timely and accurate information available on the date of publication; it will generally not be updated. Later information, including data that has had greater opportunity for quality control, will be presented in the Monthly Weather Review, usually published in the fourth week of the month.

This statement has been prepared based on information available at 8 am on Friday 1 October 2010. Some checks have been made on the data, but it is possible that results will change as new information becomes available.

Averages are long-term means based on observations from the years 1800 to 2009. They are not shown for sites with less than 10 years of record in that time, as they cannot then be calculated reliably.
The median is sometimes more representative than the mean of long-term average rain.

The Rank indicates how rainfall this time compares with the climate record for the site, based on the decile ranking (very low rainfall is in decile 1, low in decile 2 or 3, average in decile 4 to 7, high in decile 8 or 9 and very high is in decile 10).
The Fraction of average shows how much rain has fallen this time as a percentage of the long-term mean.
