Rare Image: Ex-cyclone over Alice Springs

Filed in:

It's not often we put Alice Springs and Rainstorms together - but that's the case at the moment as ex-tropical cyclone Yasi pushes across the Australian desert.

Like an arrow being shot into a watermelon Yasi is going to push at least two thirds of the way into Australia bringing flash floods, high humidity and severe thunderstorms.

WeatherWatch.co.nz reader Dale Small sent us a copy of yesterday's satellite image showing a sight that many people would never have seen in their life time - a cyclone looking low pressure system directly in the middle of Australia.

Yes, you are right!  The remnants of Yasi are falling apart and will no longer exist in a day or so.  No chance at all of it coming towards NZ, or even the remnants.  So you win!
