The average maximum temperature is similar all year round. The dry season runs from April/May to October (winter), during which nearly every day is nice and sunny. There is very little rainfall between May and September. In the coolest months of June and July, the daily minimum temperature may dip as low as 14C, but very rarely lower, and frost has never been recorded. The average temperature in the dry Season is 18-30C. The wet season is associated with tropical cyclones and monsoon rains. The majority of rainfall occurs between December and March (summer), when thunderstorms are common and afternoon relative humidity averages over 70% during the wettest months. The hottest month is November, just before the onset of the main rainy season. Because of its long dry season, Darwin has the most daily average sunshine hours (8.4) of any Australian capital with the most sunshine from April to November. The average temperature in the wet season is 22-34C. http://www.batchelor.edu.au/biite/wp-content/uploads/2013/11/WHS-cyclone-plan-2013-2014.pdf http://www.batchelor.edu.au/biite/wp-content/uploads/2013/11/P-Wet-Season-Transport-Policy-final-2013-14.pdf
