Northern Territory Forecast

No warnings for the Northern Territory

Forecast issued at 5:00 am CST on Tuesday 26 May 2015.

Weather Situation

A high over southeastern Australia is causing an east to southeast flow over the Territory. The high moves into the Tasman Sea causing showers to increase about the Top End, mostly in coastal areas, as the winds tend more humid easterly. Winds tend warmer northeasterly over the south of the Territory ahead of a slow moving trough over WA. A cloud band with patchy light rain will persist over the southwest of the Territory during the week.
