Issued at 1:19 pm WST on Thursday 21 February 2013
for the period until midnight WST Sunday 24 February 2013.

Existing Cyclones in the  Western Region:

Nil.

Potential Cyclones: 

A weak low [11U] is located in the monsoon trough near 13S 104E, about 460km
south of Christmas Island. The low is moving slowly westwards and may develop
into a tropical cyclone on Saturday or Sunday. This system is expected to pass
to the south of Cocos Island. A direct impact is not expected, but it may cause
squally winds and heavy rainfall over the weekend.

Likelihood of this system being a tropical cyclone in the Western Region on:
Friday          Low       
Saturday        Moderate   
Sunday          High       


A low [10U] in the Northern Region near 11S 129E is slowly developing and is
expected to move into the Western Region during Friday or early Saturday. This
low may develop into a tropical cyclone late on Saturday or on Sunday. Next
week there is a significant risk that this system will become a severe tropical
cyclone and impact the Pilbara or West Kimberley. People in the Pilbara and
Kimberley are advised to stay up to date with weather forecasts and warnings.
There are no other significant lows and none are expected to develop over the
next three days.

Likelihood of this system being a tropical cyclone in the Western Region on:
Friday          Low       
Saturday        Moderate   
Sunday          High       

NOTES: The likelihood is an estimate of the chance of each system being a
tropical cyclone in the Region for each day.
Very Low:     less than 5%                 Moderate:     20 to 50%
Low:          5% to 20%                    High:         over  50%

The Western Region refers to the Indian Ocean between Longitudes 90-125E and
south of 10S.
