Heavy Rain and Flooding North Western Australia 10th February 2014

Heavy Rain Flooding Western AustraliaThe tropical low over the Kimberly region is slowly moving southwest over the region and heading towards the deserts near the Pilbara. In its wake, heavy rainfall continues to soak the region with flooding - some regions are reporting rates of over 100mm per 24 hours. Kununurra, WA exceeded 290mm in its rainfall figures. By later this week, the tropical low may be situated over the northern parts of Western Australia. The low may weaken and begin to send off cloud bands that may begin to affect the southern parts of Australia including South Australia and Victoria providing the first useful rains in some time and hopefully cooling conditions there.
