TC Bruce is now a severe tropical cyclone and expected to hold a Cat 4 for a while. Way off into the Indian Ocean and no threat to the WA Coast.
Some outflow cloud has moved over the state in recent days.

The eye on Bruce is huge. He is no longer being monitored by BoM, I think la Reunion is monitoring him now.

Both Bruce and Amara are the equivalent of Cat 4 Hurricanes.

Huge eyes.

Bruce was torn apart through today.
It's neighbour, Amara, was torn apart yesterday. The moisture from Amara fed into the front that was passing south of the state today. Bruce will no doubt deliver some cloud over WA in coming days.
