Definitely a pattern emerging this year for the north west. 3 almost identical systems in regards to origing and general direction of travel. Interesting

I think we can count ourselves lucky it is exiting the coast as far South as it has made it. Any higher and it would have had a target on top of Broome as a rapidly intensifying system with that projected recurve. Still anything can happen. Been interesting to watch so far.

6am and low has moved into the middle of the Dampier Peninsular as predicted.

95kms NNE of Broome and heading to make an exit to the coast within the next couple of hours.

Movement: west southwest at 22 kilometres per hour so its not wasting any time getting to the water and becoming a TC.

Winds 50-60km/hr here atm and moderate rain.

Coming back towards the coast with a bit of a sharper left hand turn because of a blocking ridge to the south.

Yep darwindix pretty much blowing a gale and pretty much torrential rain for the last 2hours.

Noticed a couple of storm drains blocked so a bit of local flooding in Chinatown .

Broome port 91km/hr ..

70kms from Broome travelling off the coast at WSW at 20km/hr away from the town.

Soon-to-be Kelvin seems to want to hold on to the West Kimberley hospitality. Karratha had a half decent storm cell come through last night with gusts just over 100kms. Negligible rain rain of course though. Hoping Kelvin spreads his moisture down these parts as lord knows Broome has def had its fair share this season.

Lombadina 0mm, Derby 35mm, Broome 221mm quite incredible as these numbers are almost always in the opposite order for any event. As you say weve had our fair share....

I think this things going to give up turning into a cyclone and just sit where it is and dump rain on Broome for the next day or two......

There was an earlier post about Broome needing 250 mm to make it the 3rd highest wet on record Could be well on track if that's the case

3rd wettest calendar year, actually (but looking at it, also 3rd wettest wet season). It got there an hour or so ago. Still 200+ to go to the top two.

(caveat: the official figure for Broome is the 9am reading in the manual gauge, not the AWS total, but these rarely differ by more than a few percent, and the manual gauge is normally the higher of the two)

200 is highly likely based on what is still ahead ....
