A tropical low located about 85km SW of Darwin at 5:00pm (ACDT) could develop into a tropical cyclone by Wednesday, and is forecast to move into the Beagle Gulf, BOM said.

“Gales with gusts to 110 kilometres per hour are expected to develop between Daly River Mouth and Point Stuart, including Darwin and the Tiwi Islands, during Wednesday.”

“Destructive winds with gusts to 130 kilometres per hour may develop over the Tiwi Islands late Thursday if the cyclone continues to intensify.

“Heavy rain may cause widespread flooding in the northern Darwin-Daly District.” BOM said.

NO Visitors!

Just when you thought it was safe to go to the Northern Territory Wildlife Park and the Darwin Botanic Gardens, the two venues have been declared unsafe due to the wild weather and are closed to visitors.
