Tropical Low (10U)

22-26 January 2012


A tropical low pressure system with gale-force monsoonal winds affected the Northern Territory's northwest coast in the days leading up to Australia Day, 26 January 2012. Exposed coastal areas around Darwin experienced a combination of large waves, spring tides and a storm surge, causing significant erosion of cliffs and beaches. There was heavy rain and localised flooding in Darwin and the adjacent rural area, with many trees were felled around Dundee Beach (60 kilometres southwest of Darwin).
