Western Australia steals Territory's thunder

By Ruby Jones, Monday February 25, 2013 - 11:20 EDT

The Territory's Weather Bureau says a Category One cyclone forming in Western Australia is drawing heavy rains away from the Northern Territory.

The Bureau's Sally Cutter says a cyclone warning has been issued for parts of WA as far north as Broome, but Cyclone Rusty won't approach the Territory.

She says the Top End is unlikely to have any monsoonal storms until the end of the week.

"We should see the chances of on-shore showers returning from mid-week so there are going to be showers or storms around," she said.

"And as we see those winds turning around from the West it increases the likelihood of overnight rain."
