Northern Territory Forecast

No warnings for the Northern Territory

Forecast issued at 5:00 am CST on Friday 27 February 2015.

Weather Situation

A trough lies across central parts of the Territory. A humid westerly flow to the north of the trough is causing isolated showers and storms, while a high pressure system moving through the Bight is pushing drier east to southeast winds into the south of the Territory. The trough slips south as the high moves to the east while another weak trough approaches from WA, with storms extending into southwestern parts as winds tend more humid northerly. Another high early next week directs a drier southeasterly flow again across the southern districts.
