While the monsoon is remaining well offshore the NT, there are some signs that cyclones are forming in the trough.
The Bureau of Meteorology today reminded us Sunday marks the first anniversary since Category 2 tropical Cyclone Marcus passed over Darwin.
Marcus lead to widespread power outages, and thousands of fallen trees.
The bureau said monsoon break conditions will continue for the Top End this weekend.
"The monsoon trough is expected to remain well offshore to our north for the next few days, which means there's only a very slight chance the Top End will see monsoonal conditions during the next week," a spokeswoman said.
"We are keeping a close eye on the development of two areas within the monsoon trough; a tropical low near PNG, and an area north of the NT coast near East Timor where a low is beginning to form," she said.
"The most likely scenario for the system north of the NT is that it will move slowly south-west and away from the NT - however conditions may change quite quickly as the system develops, so it's too early to forecast whether any Top End locations will be affected."
The spokeswoman said there was a remote (10%) chance we could see a tropical cyclone develop over NT waters on Sunday
"The low near PNG is expected to move into the Coral Sea over the next few days, and there is a chance the system will develop over water further into next week.
"After the weekend, there is a wide area the system could move into, however the most likely areas would be either across Cape York into the Gulf of Carpentaria or it may move towards the southeast and remain in the Coral Sea
"There is some potential for two lows to develop into tropical cyclones from early next week – the next two names for cyclones that form in the Australian region will be #CycloneTrevor and #CycloneVeronica
"Tropical #CycloneSavannah (category 1) has formed near the Cocos and Keeling Islands, which is expected to cause heavy rainfall and damaging winds to the islands in the Indian Ocean during today."
