Weather Situation – Northern Western Australia
A broad trough lies near the coastal parts of the Pilbara and extends into the central parts of the Kimberley. A tropical low is developing well to the north of the Kimberley and is forecast to track to the west-southwest throughout the week with a high chance of developing into a tropical cyclone. It is likely for the system to remain well to the north of WA, however there is a slight risk of it moving close to the Pilbara late in the week or during the weekend.
