Northern Territory Forecast

No warnings for the Northern Territory

Forecast issued at 5:00 am CST on Sunday 5 April 2020.

Weather Situation

A moist northeast to northwest flow extends across the north of the Territory, ahead of a trough that will move northwards through the Top End today. A strong ridge over southern Australia brings a significant cool change to southern NT and will push drier air into the Top End during Monday and Tuesday. Next week, a cloud band develops over Western Australia and will spread into central Australia from around midweek, while another trough will arrive in the north from Queensland, which will cause humidity to return the Top End.

Forecast for the rest of Sunday

A high chance of showers and thunderstorms over western and central Top End and the northern Carpentaria District. A slight to medium chance of showers and thunderstorms elsewhere north of Elliott. Isolated heavy falls and gusty winds with thunderstorms across western Top End and northern Gregory District. Sunny elsewhere. Cooler and less humid over central districts. Light to moderate east to southeast winds south of Katherine, fresh and gusty at times during the morning south of Elliott. Light to moderate northeast to northwest winds elsewhere.

Fire Danger - Low to moderate throughout.
