Northern Territory Forecast

No warnings for the Northern Territory

Forecast issued at 4:30 pm CST on Thursday 22 June 2017.

Weather Situation

A weakening high pressure system over southeastern Australia is causing the east to southeast flow across the Territory to gradually ease. Becoming a little warmer during the next few days in the south as winds turn northeasterly ahead of a trough over Western Australia. The trough is expected to cause increasing cloud with possible showers and a cooler southeasterly change in the southwest of the Territory later in the weekend, extending eastwards across southern districts early next week.

Forecast for the rest of Thursday

Partly cloudy about the eastern Arnhem District and clear skies elsewhere. Moderate easterly winds across the Barkly District and along the eastern Top End coast with light winds elsewhere.

Friday 23 June

A slight chance of morning showers about the far northeast coast. Areas of morning fog about the eastern Arnhem and northern Carpentaria Districts. Increasing cloud about the southwest Lasseter District and sunny elsewhere. Light to moderate east to southeast winds, fresh at times about the Gove Peninsula. Light to moderate east to northeast winds south of Tennant Creek.

Fire Danger - High to Very High in the Daly District. High in the Katherine region and the western Arnhem District.
