The Northern Territory (NT) comprises a land area of 1,346,200 km2, and is the third largest of the states and territories in area after Western Australia and Queensland. The NT sits within two climatic zones: the wet/dry tropics in the north; and the semi-arid to arid areas in the south. In the north the 'wet season' runs from 1 October to 30 April, and the 'dry season' runs from 1 May to 30 September. Relative humidity in the north is highest during the wet season and lowest at the height of the dry season. In contrast, the southern part of the NT is relatively dry for most of the year, with cool winters and hot summers.

Information on the NT climate by location can be found on the Bureau of Meteorology's Northern Territory climate statistics webpage for variables such as temperature, relative humidity, wind speed and rainfall.
