WELL HELLO THERE MONSOON!
In some good news for the Top End, the monsoon flow to the north of the continent looks to have become more active today as shown on the IR Satellite Imagery from our weather centre. Darwin had its first decent shower in weeks this afternoon which is a good sign the suppressed garbage you have all endured has finally buggered off! There has also been some good storm and shower activity around Gove and Katherine today while areas in the Barkly District are still forecast to get hammered.
Hopefully as the the low in the Barkly District tracks west it will begin to pull the monsoon flow down closer to the North Coast in coming days, a little earlier than forecast ?
Taking a look at our rainfall forecast for the NT in our weather centre below (average stats), you can see that rainfall will be steadily increasing across the north in coming days, a sign the models are picking up the monsoon flow becoming active again with some proper cross equtorial flow. Interestingly, some models are going for a very wet start to next week for Darwin, let's hope it comes off after a horrid few weeks in the far north.
