This LOW is virtually right on top of Broome right now according to the latest track map. Its pumping out side with a staggering 4 knots lol. Its going to take some time for this one to wind up I feel. Wonder whether it will even make TC status. Be good to see what it does.

Apparently now the Pilbara on blue alert.
DFES advises of the following community alerts:

BLUE ALERT: People in parts of the Pilbara from Port Hedland (not including Port Hedland or South Hedland) to the Exmouth Gulf, including Barrow Island but not including Pannawonica. This includes the towns of Whim Creek, Wickham, Point Sampson, Karratha, Roebourne, Dampier and Onslow need to prepare for cyclonic weather and organise an emergency kit including first aid kit, torch, portable radio, spare batteries, food and water.

Got the circulation but can't see it ramping up too much further ...
So far we got a maximum wind gust of 37km/hr not enough to blow my roof off but it did make my towel on the clothes line move...ever so slightly.. smile

At least this low has quite a bit of moisture in it and will hopefully give the Pilbara a drink.

So far 87mms at my place.

Heres hoping it does. But I think it is too far north to affect our weather. Fingers crossed for Karatha

Karratha and Onslow had up to 72/km/hr winds so thats not amazing but still considered gale force nonetheless.
