A band of cloud from the WA Pilbara to the Goldfields due to a low and trough is generating intense rain and storms, causing flooding in the Pilbara. Low cloud in the southwest in cool southerlies is only bringing light showers. Cloud in the Kimberley is causing a few storms.
A tropical low off north Queensland has a high chance of developing into a cyclone and making landfall by early next week, the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) says.
Queensland may see its first tropical cyclone in two years in coming days, although the situation is still hard to call.
It runs one of the most-viewed websites in Australia and broadcasts its weather forecasts and warnings around the country each day.
