Best laid 'Plans' no match for Darwin's monsoonal weather.
Known for its spoiling of important holidays, the Top End's unpredictable monsoonal weather laid claim to Territorians' New Years Eve plans last night as the planned celebrations at the Darwin Waterfront were cancelled.
Headline attraction Birds of Tokyo were already in town ready for the show when the show was cancelled early in the afternoon.
BOM community information officer Patch Clapp said between 30mm and 60mm of rain was expected with isolated falls of up to 150mm possible. Damaging winds of up to 90km/h were forecast as possible from Palmerston to Nhulunbuy, making the event too dangerous to proceed.
Birds of Tokyo took to social media to lament the cancellation.
