Kimberley and the adjacent Pilbara, as a monsoonal flow continues over the
north of the State. The tropical low may move off the Kimberley coast late on
Monday or early Tuesday, and then move parallel to the Pilbara coast during
Wednesday and Thursday.
In the absence of significant forecast rain flooding is not expected in the
DFES's State Emergency Service (SES) advises people and communities to be aware
