No warnings for the Northern Territory

Forecast issued at 4:40 pm CST on Monday 24 November 2014.

Weather Situation

As the ridge along the Queensland coast weakens more humid air will extend into the Top End with showers and storms increasing. A series of troughs are moving through central Australia, causing showers and storms across central and southern parts of the Territory. Hot to very hot conditions across the Territory easing as shower and storm activity becomes more widespread in the north while a high moving east through the Bight brings 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.

Forecast for the rest of Monday

Slight to medium chance of showers and storms throughout, though gradually clearing from the far south. Light to moderate northeast to northwest winds ahead of a fresh southeast change developing in the far south later in the day.

Tuesday 25 November

Mostly sunny over the Lasseter, Simpson and southern Tanami Districts. Slight to medium chance of showers and storms elsewhere, increasing to a high chance over the Daly, Gregory, and western Arnhem Districts where moderate falls are possible.
