|Raining on the Rock|
Central Australia is getting a decent amount of rain, in fact one of the wettest May days on record. Many areas west of Alice Springs receiving 40 - 60mm to 0900hrs this morning, with Alice Springs rain commencing around lunch time.
Rumours hath it that Darwin may also get some of this from the same system. BUT BUT........they are finally predicting some true dry season weather by the weekend, after this burst of rainy weather moves east. Cooler nights, drier days and maybe no more rain - for a while.
Unfortunately, there are a few indicators in the climate sphere, that do not augur well for a decent dry season, with predictors of possibly more rain in coming months around the Top End and certainly more rain for central Australia.
Should not complain too loudly - the past two dry seasons were fantastic weather. It cannot always be like that though.
Looking forward to this coming weekend for better weather!
