Weather Situation

A return to more typical conditions for this time of year in the north with more regular shower and storm activity, more likely during the afternoon and evening. Meanwhile, a high moving east through the Bight has brought a slightly cooler and clearing southeast change to southern districts. As the high moves over southeast Australia later in the week, another trough approaches from the west with showers and storms extending south again along the western border, then extending eastwards across the south during the weekend.

Forecast for the rest of Wednesday

Partly cloudy over the Lasseter and Simpson Districts. Slight to medium chance of showers and gusty storms elsewhere, increasing to a high to very high chance over the Tiwi, Gregory and Daly Districts where moderate falls are possible. Moderate east to southeast winds over the southern half, fresh at times in the morning, light to moderate east to northeast winds elsewhere.

Fire Danger - High over the Darwin and Adelaide River, Arnhem, Carpentaria and Barkly South Districts.
