DARWIN TC IMPACT LIKELY THIS WEEKEND

Darwin get set for a wild weekend of squally storms and possible gales. A Tropical low has been developing over the last few days in the Arafura Sea and will drift SW to be near Darwin on Sunday. When the low develops into a TC it will be named TC BLANCHE.

Images below show the likely position of the system on Sunday, as you can see gales will likely begin to affect the Darwin area later this weekend into early Monday morning. Often with this type of scenario it's not uncommon to see waterspouts and tornadoes embedded within thunderstorms so keep a watchful eye on the sky and adhere to all warnings..

Heavy rainfall will also be a feature with falls of up to 300mm possible in some locations and flash flooding likely. Squally winds and gales will also generate large swells and waves on the coast.
