A deep trough, with potential to develop into a weak tropical low, is heading towards the Territory and the weather bureau is predicting it could bring more showers. Bureau senior forecaster Angeline Prasad said: We are looking at a deep trough that will head into the NT Gulf of Carpentaria and into the Arafura Sea, which would bring an increase in the weather. Ms Prasad said that, by late tomorrow, the system could lead to showers and storms in Darwin, with falls of up to 100mm possible. Ms Prasad said the bureau was monitoring the possibility of a weak low developing in the trough tomorrow and moving west. The low itself will be weak but depending on how close it gets to us, will depend on how much rain we will get, she said. Ms Prasad said the chance of it developing into a cyclone was very low. There was a storm in Darwin about 1.30am yesterday. Nightcliff recorded the highest falls with 26mm. But Darwin Airport recorded only 2mm. Ms Prasad said the rain had dried out quickly and there was only a small chance of an early morning shower today. The forecast top for Darwin today is 34C. The forecast for tomorrow is for a maximum of 32C with showers and storms possible. Alice Springs is expected to have average maximum temperatures for April of about 30C but there may be rain towards the end of the week. Drossos Petrakis cooks the souvla at Darwins East Point Greek Easter celebrations yesterday Picture: KATRINA BRIDGEFORD Its all Greek ... with a dash of Territory DROSSOS Petrakis was at East Point overlooking the sea at 5.30am yesterday. He had to mark out the patch for his family and cook souvla on the spit roast. They were celebrating the Greek Orthodox Easter, the date of which is determined by the older Julian calendar. It began with fireworks at midnight on Saturday. Mr Petrakis said his family had celebrated Greek Easter at East Point for about 40 years. We are Greek but still we live here, so I mean, we are Darwinites, he said. I marinated this meat three days ago. If you marinate it earlier you get a better taste. It has a few herbs from Kalymnos, you cant get them anywhere in Darwin or Australia. Not only lamb was on the menu. There were dolmades, Greek salad, octopus, beers and a touch of ouzo. Mr Petrakis said they were celebrating the same way people would in Kalymnos but with jet skis and Australian Rules footballs. About 1000 people were at the celebrations. Police Acting Senior Sergeant David Wilson said they received no complaints.
