Went for a drive out to the plains in the arvo yesterdays ,water still across the road in 3 places up to about 20 cms deep.

All together about about 2 kms to cross .
Still flowing quite rapidly and lots of small mullet around on the road especially on the northern end.
Unfortunately not much storm activity on the Eastern side of the plains but their was a nice TS to the south and made for a awesome sunset.

A couple of pics from yesterdays drive out to the Plains.
Yes I haven't got a you beaut camera like most but ...

Just to give you an idea of the extent of the wet season rains.

The first pic is (believe it or not) the Number One Highway going to south to Port Hedland from the Roebuck Plains.

The second pic is of a TS dropping its footprint on the land south of Broome taken from the southern end of the Plains.

And there is in the first water crossing lots of small mullet floating across the road.
Amazing to see at night with their eyes lighting up in the headlights.

Humidity starting to climb again in Broome and dew point at 24deg so things could be revving up for a few showers around the area today and tomorrow. Low off the coast and trough formed sucking in some nice tropical air.

Should get something with of all the moisture feeding in from the north. My guess is about 5-10mms at this stage..

Potential for good storms around today in the Pilbara especially near Karatha and southwards inland and later on the coast.

Raining in Broome atm started heavy but light now only a couple of mms in Chinatown but lot heavier west of the town.

5mms in Broometown today with a few good thunderstorms passing close by ..
Around my area in south Cable Beach we received 21mms in 2 separate fairly heavy downpours.

Lots of the more moist rainbands kept more adjacent to the coast dragged along by northerly steering winds.
Hopefully more in next couple of days.
