MONSOON TO RETURN WITH A VENGEANCE TO QLD AND THE NT
The monsoon is getting set for a re-appearance across Northern Australia and while the NT has already benefited from it, it looks as though far Northern Queensland will get to join in the fun as well this time around. Tropical Cyclone Nock-Ten is weakening near the Philippines and once it dies, a strong burst of monsoonal NE winds will cross the equator and become our next burst of the Aussie NW monsoon. This is all set to take place starting around Mid-week and by the end of the week, the monsoon trough will be well and truly re-established across Northern Australia. Check out the progression and intensification of the North Australian Monsoon in the imagery below starting on Wednesday to Sunday morning.
1 or 2 Tropical LOWS are also likely to form along the monsoon trough over the next 7-10 days, and their exact formation location will play a vital role in where the heaviest rainfall will be. More on that soon.
