TROPICAL CYCLONE WARNING

TROPICAL CYCLONE ADVICE NUMBER 6
Issued at 1:55 pm CST [12:25 pm WST] on Tuesday 13 March 2012

A Cyclone WARNING has been declared for coastal and island communities from
Cape Hotham to Kalumburu, including Darwin and the Tiwi Islands, and inland to
include Batchelor, Adelaide River and Daly River .

At 12:30 pm CST [11:00 am WST] a Tropical Low was estimated to be
315 kilometres west of Darwin and
265 kilometres northwest of Port Keats and
moving south southeast at 9 kilometres per hour.

The tropical low has slowed and appears to be turning southeast towards the Top
End coast. The low is expected to develop into a tropical cyclone early on
Wednesday morning and is likely to cross the west coast of the Top End later on
Wednesday.

GALES with gusts to 100 kilometres per hour are expected to develop between
Cape Hotham and Port Keats, including the Tiwi Islands, early Wednesday
morning. Winds may increase further with gusts to 120 kilometres per hour in
coastal areas between Cape Hotham and Port Keats, including Darwin and the
rural area, during Wednesday afternoon and evening. GALES with gusts to 100
kilometres per hour may extend further inland to Batchelor, Adelaide River and
Daly River later on Wednesday or early Thursday. GALES may also develop between
Port Keats and Kalumburu in Western Australia if the developing cyclone takes a
more southerly track.

These guys chase Cyclones and are full of information on how when and where these whirlies happen.
xweatherlive Link

These guys chase cyclones. They predicted the current system's days ago. They are currently heading over WA as that system is expected to be very strong by the end of the weekend. The video updates every night explain what's going on and how they form and what is needed to make the cyclone stronger ie cat 1-5 or what is expected to happen to turn them away.
