As some of you are already aware Iggy is currently tracking down the WA coast off NW Cape. Still a fair way out to sea but a very unpredictable path. Anyone heading up that way especially with a van may want to keep an eye on the BOM site for any warnings.

"At 5:00 pm WST Tropical Cyclone Iggy, Category 2 was estimated to be
355 kilometres northwest of Exmouth and
590 kilometres north northwest of Carnarvon and
is near stationary."
Dont know where you got un-predicatable. Been tracking the low then the cyclone for work since Monday. Looks like a fizzer to me.

If you have been watching this one from formation a few days ago and noted where it was originally heading and the number of course changes it has made you would know what I meant.
My son works at one of loading docks for Riotinto and I can assure you they were keeping a very close eye on it until it decided to head away from them.
I agree if it keeps heading towards ocean areas of low surface temperature then it will lose intensity. If not who knows and if you read my post it was intended as an info only for those heading up that way.

Yep I check each update, as yet there has been no note of it making land fall.

Gidday

Bigger problem for travellers up that way might be the fires burning north and south of Carnarvon for the last few weeks. There have been closures of the highway north and south of the town at different times. A huge area has been burnt out and the Kennedy Range national park seems to be badly affected which might be worth noting for people heading that way later in the year. Even some moderate winds from Iggy could complicate things. A little rain might be welcome but last week I think some rain caused more problems than it helped as it made it difficult for fire fighters to move vehicles

This website gives a good report and he's pretty well spot on.
