Looking good there hey!!! No doubt you're off for a drive down that way for a look. Hoping the West Kimberley gets a drenching before it gets across to the NT. Enjoy.

Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Northern Territory


Flood Watch for Western Inland Rivers

Issued at 12:29 pm CST on Wednesday 4 May 2016

Flood watch number: 2

A trough will deepen over Western Australia over the next few days and move towards Central Australia. A cloud band associated with this trough will extend across southwestern parts of the Northern Territory bringing a high chance of widespread rain.

Rainfall developing over the Tanami and Lasseter districts on Thursday will then extend further east before clearing late in the weekend or early next week. Possible heavy falls over the Lasseter and Tanami Districts could bring up to 100mm of rain before the cloud band clears.

Widespread areas of inundation can be expected in the Tanami and Lasseter districts on the weekend. This is expected to affect road access in many parts with some roads becoming impassable. Some communities may also become isolated.

See www.bom.gov.au/australia/warnings/ to view all of the Bureau's current warning products.

The Northern Territory Emergency Service advises that people should:

- Stay away from flooded drains, rivers, streams and waterways

- Avoid driving into water of unknown depth and current

- Stop children playing in or near floodwaters

- Create your own sandbags if there is flooding, by using pillowcases and shopping bags filled with sand and place them around doorways to protect your home

- Be careful of fallen power lines. They are dangerous and should always be treated as live

For emergency help in floods, storms and cyclones call 132 500.

Emergency information including the latest road conditions is available at www.securent.nt.gov.au

The heavy rain up this way in the trough tracked NE a little quicker than planned. The day of heavy rain today has been zero (so far at least). I wonder whether that will change outcomes through other parts of Australia.

Not sure, rain is getting heavier here. Could be a few storms firing up near here going off the tracker. Fingers crossed we get some good rain tonight.

Southern NT to get a soaking
Tristan Meyers, Thursday June 16, 2016 - 14:49 EST
An unseasonable soaking is going to impact southern parts of the NT, including parts of the Barkly, Lasseter, Tanami and Simpson.

Tennant Creek and Alice Springs are among the areas that have a good chance to get about 10-20mm. The last time these areas have seen this amount of rain during June was 2008, potentially even farther back for some locations.

However, totals in excess of 25mm are a chance for northern parts of the Simpson and southern parts of the Barkly. This is fairly rare - these areas generally only expect 5-10mm or less during the entire month.

Although the radar may not show it, a 48 hour rain event will start from tomorrow morning as showers, rain and some storms, easing into the evening. Heavier pockets of rain will develop on Saturday in eastern parts of the Simpson and Barkly. Flash flooding is a risk throughout this period due to heavy rainfall rates on dry soil.

This will be the second time this year that this part of the NT has had unseasonable rain - the first being a rainband that brought widespread 10-20mm in early May. These events are most likely influenced by the warmer-than average waters in the Indian Ocean. As low pressure troughs move from west to east across the nation, their extra moisture content drawn in from these waters has lead to rains reaching usually dry areas at unusual times of year.

Hail batters the NT, with more rain to come
Kim Westcott, Saturday June 18, 2016 - 06:50 EST
Hailstones belted down over the Northern Territory's Simpson district on Friday, with more severe weather to come.

Around 4pm on Friday afternoon, thunderstorms formed around Alice Springs. Due to significant cooling in the upper atmosphere, water droplets formed into ice inside the thunderstorm, falling as hail throughout the Alice Springs area. This intense band of storms was very slow-moving, with thunderstorms persisting until the early hours of Saturday morning.

Throughout this event, over 12 000 lightning strikes were recorded within 100km of Alice Springs. Aside from the hail, rain also fell throughout the district, with 62mm recorded at Alice Springs Plaza, 52mm at Charles River and 51mm at Mount Lloyd. At Alice Springs airport, 17mm landed in the rain gauge making it the wettest June day in 13 years.

A Severe Weather Warning has been issued for parts of the northeastern parts of the Simpson and southern parts of Barkley districts with heavy rain and damaging wind gusts today. Locations that may be affected include Tennant Creek, Ali Curung, Alpurrurulam, Ampilatwatja, Avon Downs, Jervois and Ti Tree. Throughout Saturday falls in these areas may be as high as 50mm, with some places potentially picking up higher 24 hour totals, up to 100mm.

The low pressure trough which is responsible for this rain will move east and out of the NT during Sunday, allowing rain to clear. A high pressure ridge will push in quickly from behind, with most of inland areas likely to remain dry for the remainder of the week, while coastal parts of the Top End should pick up showers from about Thursday.
