Conditions are expected to become favorable for the monsoon trough to return to the Arafura Sea and Timor Sea late this week. A tropical low can develop within this trough toward the weekend.

There is a lot of convection north of Darwin atm. Surface wind profile shows a weak low surface rotation .Weak NW infeed with stronger SE inflow.I think the cloud transfer south of this area is referred to as upper wind shear

Weekly Tropical Climate Note
30 April 2019 Next issue 7 May 2019

Late wet season tropical activity for northern Australia
A monsoon trough is expected to develop across the Indonesian archipelago and Arafura Sea this week. While the monsoon trough is not expected to extend as far south as Australia, some associated rainfall is likely to fall across parts of Australia's far north in the coming week. This is late in the season for this to happen, as dry season conditions are typically becoming established at this time of the year. With an active monsoon trough developing there is also an increased risk of tropical low or cyclone development in Australian waters, though current weather models do not indicate tropical cyclone formation in the Australian region in the coming week.

ACCESSg not keen at all on an invest above the top end.
ACC forecast takes out the top end circulation with a blast of surface easterlies.
ACC is on board with the coral low but is keeping it intensifying in the fiji area of responsibility with a southern track to the islands. Might make a TC but very likely an intense tropical storm
