Weather Situation – Northern Western Australia
A trough lies over the far northern Kimberley as a ridge extends northwards
over the State. The western part of this trough will move back over the Pilbara
coast later today and will linger near the Pilbara coast on Wednesday and
Thursday as the ridge over the region begins to weaken.
Weather Situation – Southern and Central Western Australia
A strong ridge of high pressure extends across much of the State in the wake of
a trough that has cleared away into South Australia. This ridge will dominate
the weather pattern for much of this week, with the ridge axis starting to slip
southward today to ease the winds and showers over the south coastal districts.
A west coast trough will develop on Wednesday and remain near the coast on
Thursday, starting to move inland during Friday.
