Alice may get 50mm rain next week

Drenching rainfall from a significant cloud band developing over Central Australia is forecast from Sunday.

Yulara could see up to 15 to 20mm from persistent rain.

Across Monday and Tuesday both the Top End (including Katherine) and Alice Springs area can expect rain, says the Bureau of Metereology.

It should bring short-term relief from the sticky heat in the north, and cool things down considerably in the south, with Alice Springs maximum temperature tipped to drop by 21C, from 35C on Sunday to just 14C on Monday.

Thunderstorms could drop 25mms of rain around the Western Top End from Monday to Thursday, with the greatest chance of rainfall in Darwin occurring on Tuesday.

The bulk of the rain around Alice Springs is forecast to fall Monday and Tuesday, with about 50mm possible as the cloud band moves across next week.

  1. Wow PG! spend a squillion, and watch the water evaporate.
    Or empty it so that it can be for flood mitigation?
    Please read the reports.
    And of course, where is the money coming from?
    It seems the rain is slipping away to the SW, Areyonga to Kulgera.
    We’ve had three spots so far.

  2. @ Charlie: I think PG was having a bit of a joke … the word Dam followed by ! gave it away.
    As why would one end and start a new short sentence with just one word followed by a !
