Possible cyclone and rain but blue skis for south

1 Mins read

There are three things you might want to remember this Easter: fish on Good Friday, a chocolate egg or two on Sunday, and an umbrella for the whole weekend.

Forecasters are warning it could be a soggy Easter in the country’s east and southwest while the Top End and northwest Western Australia may need to start hunkering down for a coming cyclone.

“We could see an increase in the rain through the Easter weekend,” said Sky News Weather meteorologist Ron Sharpe. That could be concentrated around the Queensland and northern New South Wales coasts and the Northern Territory.

But if you’re in Victoria, South Australia, Tasmania, or much of Western Australia, sunshine and pleasant weather are likely on the menu for Easter lunch. A high-pressure system over southern Australia generally leads to light and mild conditions over much of the country leading into Easter weekend. But instability is brewing.

Possible tropical cyclone brewing

Off the north coast of Australia, the monsoon is bubbling back into life once more. The real drama is further west, though, said Mr. Sharpe. “There’s a low-pressure system, and that’s expected to strengthen. “It’s about a 50/50 chance to become a tropical cyclone — maybe even slightly greater than that,” he said.

“It’s most likely to develop off the coast of the Kimberley. However, some models do bring it a bit closer to the Top End, so we cannot rule it out that it could be nearby to Darwin.”

The NT city should see some rain during the week, but a combination of the monsoon and a possible cyclone somewhere in the vicinity should lead to a wet Easter with 30mm on Saturday and Sunday. Temperatures will hover around 31C.
