A severe weather warning will remain in place for the West Kimberley today, despite most of the heavy rainfall expected to hit the Pilbara.

Bureau of Meteorology Broome technical officer Craig Hall said this morning’s thunderstorm had brought about 35-38mm, but showers were expected to ease off.

“There may be a few storms but we’ll probably start to seeing the rain taper off,” he said.

“There may be some falls into the mid-50s to 100s but they will be very isolated.”

Mr Hall said a severe weather warning was still in place for possible heavy falls but most of the general activity would be concentrated on the Pilbara.

Meanwhile, BOM reported a “very low” chance of the existing tropical low forming into a cyclone.

Mr Hall said the tropical low was currently in the north Pilbara, still tracking down the coast and was due to move inland towards Newman.

“Basically, at this stage, there’s a very low chance of it moving off the coast.”
