I am thinking this one will just drift away from WA after Exmouth. Seems to be the 'new' cycle. Exmouth does look to be in for a dirty Tuesday night.

Looks like he went straight over Mardie station, sidestepped Onslow and is now headed straight for Exmouth. Talk about taking a tour of the NW!

Seems to be loosing a bit of organisation as he passes over the North West Cape region, still very impressive looking on the learmouth radar though:
http://radar.strikeone.com.au/?fuseacti ... teFinish=0 <--- last 200 frames on the 512km Learmouth radar.

A tad bit wet too by the looks of things up in Exmouth too hey Exmouth1? :)

You need to upload them to a site such as photobucket then copy the img tags and paste them into your post here.

You can also use the 'upload attachment' feature below the 'post a reply' window. The image file should be fairly small though so if its straight off a digital camera you may need to resize it.

Maybe a bit of SSW movement now? I don't think he likes hanging out over water much. Time will tell.

If you don't want to mess around with photobucket use http://www.imgur.com - couple of clicks then copy them inside [.img]www.imgur.com/example.png[/img] tags (without the . in the first one)
