Wondering if there may have been a bit of a tornado element to that storm yesterday... some of the pictures of the storm kind of show some interesting cloud, and the wind was apparently rather wild

Some heavy rain round 130 km north of Alice at the moment. A rain gauge 25 km east of Aileron Road house has had 81 mm most of it falling in an hour. That area has had over 400 mm since mid December.

Surprised this didn't make much news: Alice Springs AP recorded its hottest temperature on record yesterday, 45.6c. Today's 44.4 also exceeded the old December record of 44.2 in 1972

I can imagine that and today, Alice broke its December 1972 record for a third day in a row, reaching 45.1c. Quite a rare feat for a site with 8 decades worth of records..

I had a look at the forecast maps and it seems as if Cyclone Trevor is going to move right over Alice Springs this coming weekend. The forecast has it moving inland west of Burketown and sending very heavy rainfall over the eastern part of the Northern Territory extending even into the Simpson Desert.

There is also another cyclone shown on the prognostic chart for next Sunday near Onslow. If that cyclone moves westward, we could see the monsoon trough drawn far, far to the south and extend a drenching into the interior of Western Australia and the southwest of the Northern Territory.

However, contrary to the maps suggested on Weatherzone, the BOM forecast does not predict any rainfall for the south of the Northern Territory until at least next Monday, and very little even as far north as Tennant Creek.

What could be causing these differences and what would happen if Trevor does move over the Red Center?
