Hot and dry spell for the NT


For the next couple of days and much of next week, weather conditions across the Northern Territory will be hot with not much rain for non-coastal locations, a bit like conditions in the early build-up

Tomorrow and Saturday we may see some relief with a slight to medium chance of showers and storms in the western Top End, with just a very slight chance elsewhere

Temperatures are forecast to be in the 40s for the next week in central areas of the NT with high 30s in the southern districts.

Normally at this time of year there would be signs of the monsoon forming in the southern hemisphere.

Currently the monsoon focus remains north of the equator so we don't expect the monsoon to be active for north Australia during the next two weeks
