Issued at 8:52 am WST on Thursday 30 December 2010

A Cyclone WATCH has been declared for a developing tropical low for coastal
areas from Wallal to Exmouth.

At 8:00 am WST a Tropical Low was estimated to be over land,
275 kilometres east northeast of Kununurra and
135 kilometres west southwest of Katherine and
moving west southwest at 10 kilometres per hour.

The low may develop into a tropical cyclone after it moves off the west
Kimberley coast late Friday or early Saturday. It is not expected to cause
gales on Thursday or Friday. Gales may develop along the Pilbara coast on
Saturday as the system moves steadily towards the west southwest parallel to
the Pilbara coast. By Sunday evening the system is likely to be north of
Exmouth and continuing to move towards the west.

Heavy rainfall is expected in the north Kimberley over the next two days as the
system moves westwards. The system is unlikely to cause flooding in the
Kimberley or Pilbara due to its steady movement.

FESA-State Emergency Service advises that there are no community alerts at
present.
Communities between Wallal and Exmouth should listen for the next advice.

Centre located near...... 15.1 degrees South 131.2 degrees East
