Weather Situation

A dry southeast flow over most of the Territory is causing mostly sunny conditions apart from a few showers and storms over the Top End and in the eastern Barkly District. A strengthening trough over the Top End and moisture increasing from the east will cause shower and storm activity to increase a little across the northern half for the next few days. Although the monsoon is expected to redevelop across the Arafura Sea over coming days, it will most likely remain to the north and have minimal impact over the Top End. Remaining mostly sunny and hot to very hot in the south.
