Bloody freez­ing weather to get colder

Sunday Territorian - - NEWS -

DID you feel the cold yes­ter­day?

You haven’t lost the plot — al­though the ther­mome­ter read 24.4C at 8.30am yes­ter­day, Dar­win dropped to a bor­der­line Arc­tic ap­par­ent tem­per­a­ture of just 18.3C.

The ap­par­ent tem­per­a­tures hov­ered around 20C for most of the morn­ing.

And it’s go­ing to get even colder dur­ing the week.

A min­i­mum of 20C is fore­cast for to­day.

Mon­day will drop to 19C be­fore the tem­per­a­ture is pre­dicted to plunge to 18C on Tues­day, Wed­nes­day and Thurs­day.

Humpty Doo will be even colder, with min­i­mums of 15C fore­cast.

Luck­ily for thin-blooded Top En­ders, the max­i­mum tem­per­a­ture is ex­pected to sit at a more palat­able 31C or 32C through­out the week.

While Dar­win, Palmer­ston and ru­ral area res­i­dents re­place their thongs with snow boots and bring their win­ter sin­glets out of stor­age as they brace for an im­mi­nent win­try doom, those liv­ing in Alice Springs will sto­ically face down a min­i­mum of 1C with frosts fore­cast to­day.

The min­i­mum will then in­crease to 2C to­mor­row be­fore reach­ing a balmy 4C later in the week.

Alice Springs is ex­pected to reach a max­i­mum tem­per­a­ture of 20C to­day.
