No warnings for the Northern Territory

Weather Situation

A humid and unstable northeast to northwesterly flow continues to bring showers and storms to the northern half of the Territory. Hot and humid northeasterly winds in the south ahead of an approaching trough is causing isolated showers and storms. The trough is expected to move northwards through the southern half of the Territory early this week, followed by a slightly cooler, dry southeast change. A high moving into the Bight later on Wednesday reinforces the southeast change with temperatures dropping further in the south and dry air pushing northwards towards the Top End by the end of the week.
