BROOME TO FEEL EFFECTS OF TROPICAL LOW OVERNIGHT AND TOMORROW MORNING
Tropical LOW 94S is currently located about 150 - 200km to the ESE of Broome and is expected to track slightly west overnight to lie a little closer to the major Kimberley town by morning. As it pushes to the west or west-south-west overnight, the system is expected to whip up winds of 20-30 knots with squally gusts to 40 knots particularly early tomorrow morning. The model below shows winds whipping up between 5 and 8AM tomorrow morning on the Western Kimberley as the LOW makes its closest approach to the west coast.
Heavy rainfall from this system is expected to also develop and with it will be some strong squalls that could see wind gusts reach between 70 - 90km/hr. Modelling currently shows the period between 2AM and 8AM WST will produce the heaviest rainfalls and strongest squalls. The heaviest falls will be closer to Bidyadanga but Broome should still see some heavy rain from this LOW.
