Big CAPE again today for storms forming on the sea breeze boundary to work with. Rural areas in particular should see something but steer looks alright to perhaps get something into Darwin too.

Overall a big increase in storm activity over the coming days as instability steps up a notch to be more in line with what we should be seeing at this time of year.

I'm a bit late to this thread but I have fond memories of Timber Creek. I lived there for about a year all up. Great place, back when both pubs were open. The Wayside inn was a great place. I spent more than one dawn watching the blood red sun shine on the escarpment ... with my beer in hand still at the bar. :)
Back then the Army had just bought Bradshaw from the McBeans, and I went over there a few times. Fantastic country, even better over the other side towards the Fitzmaurice River. Just stunning.
Brutal time of year now though!

I had to run over to Kununurra today to get a new hydraulic hose made up for our excavator...nice cool overcast day and raining when I got there, then a heavy rainstorm about 100klm east of the WA border.

Noisy old storm banging away just off the coast at the moment, managed to skip right over Darwin and bomb in the harbour :mad:

Fairly active inland at the moment, currently shooting lightning out on the AR floodplain and it's pretty non-stop but very messy. Linear rubbish.

Another couple cells sliding in from the east this afternoon. Nothing to write home about though, small fast moving things.

To give some NT perspective to the unprecedented heat torturing Australia atm.... the AWS at Tindal is running at 5.1c above the monthly average at 40.7c This is an incredible reading for a station so deep in the tropics at 14.5S of latitude !
And the next 7 days show some 43's and a 44c on Boxing Day in the forecast ! Already exceeded the previous Dec maximum temp 7 times this month !
