TROPICAL CYCLONE ADVICE NUMBER 18
Issued at 5:30 am WST on Saturday 17 February 2018

Headline:
Tropical cyclone likely to form off the west Kimberley coast Saturday morning and expected to cross the west Kimberley or east Pilbara coast on Sunday

Areas Affected:
Warning Zone
Cape Leveque to Port Hedland, including Broome and Bidyadanga.

Watch Zone
extending to the inland east Pilbara and the southwest Kimberley to include Marble Bar, Nullagine and Telfer.

Cancelled Zone
None.

Details of Tropical Low at 5:00 am AWST:
Intensity: Tropical Low, sustained winds near the centre of 65 kilometres per hour with wind gusts to 95 kilometres per hour.

Later during Saturday it is likely to begin moving south or southeast before making landfall on Sunday along the east Pilbara or far west Kimberley coast. Due to proximity to land and subsequent delay in intensification the low is no longer expected to reach category 3 intensity.

GALES with gusts to 100 kilometres per hour may develop in coastal parts between Bidyadanga and Pardoo Roadhouse during Saturday. Gales may extend further west towards Port Hedland Saturday night if the system takes a more westerly track. Gales may extend from Bidyadanga to Cape Leveque including Broome Sunday morning.

DESTRUCTIVE winds with gusts to 150 kilometres per hour may develop along the coast between Bidyadanga and Pardoo Roadhouse from Saturday evening.

ABNORMALLY HIGH TIDES could cause minor flooding at the coast between Broome and Pardoo during Sunday.

Flood Watches and Warnings are current, please refer to http://www.bom.gov.au/wa/warnings/ for further details.

A weak tropical low lies about 350 kilometres east northeast of Darwin. It is expected to move in a west southwest direction on Wednesday and Thursday, towards the northern Kimberley.

On Friday it is likely to move off the west Kimberley coast. If it remains over water, there is a high chance of it developing into a tropical cyclone over the weekend.

Did you know that today marks the 7th anniversary of Cyclone Yasi?

For those of you who remember, Yasi crossed land and left a trail of devastation to Innisfail, Tully, Cardwell and Mission Beach where homes were destroyed, crops shredded and marinas and island resorts smashed to pieces.

Do you have photos to share from this time 7 years ago?

Coral Sea Update

The monsoon trough extends across the northern Coral Sea, and a series of weak and transient lows have been observed along its length in the previous few days.

Atmospheric conditions are becoming less favourable for tropical cyclone development, and the probability of a tropical cyclone developing during the next few days is now considered to be very low.

... See More

There are no significant lows currently in the region and none are expected to develop through today. The monsoon trough is currently located between Lockhart River and Cooktown, extending east into the Coral Sea.

The strengthening monsoon flow in the northwest Coral Sea will increase the chance of tropical cyclone development from low on Thursday to moderate from Friday. The best chance of a tropical cyclone is along the monsoon trough well east of the Queensland coast.

Con...ditions for tropical cyclone development, or a tropical cyclone to persist, remain favourable into early next week, with the best chance along the monsoon trough in the northern Coral Sea.

The Bureau of Meteorology is predicting a cyclone to form off the North Queensland coast later this week.

A weak trough currently extends across the northwest Coral Sea. This trough is expected to deepen and become more active as a monsoon develops through the Coral Sea from Friday through the weekend.

A low may develop within the monsoon trough over the Coral Sea in the coming days, well offshore from the Queensland coast, with a moderate chance of cyclone development from Saturday as the monsoon strengthens. If a low or tropical cyclone did form, it would move east-southeast, away from the Queensland coast.
