Rightio all the Swellnet forecasters out there , anyone got any prediction for the next cyclone to cross the Pilbara coast ?
Might as well extend to Exmouth to keep it real.

Just have a punt. Winner takes all.

If you've got ANY sort of theory behind your call , then let's hear it.

I realise this isn't the speciality of the most vociferous forecasters, but fuck it, just have a go.

Well the old girl had to release the riser and sail out to sea around Olwyn, or hide behind the islands.
In the process of hooking back up so my stint this Sunday had been aborted, what a shame;)
Feel sorry for your eyes, reading my shit;)

Height whilst on ropes...! Wind on ropes....! Or cyclone potential...! Which is around 200 nautical miles then they disconnect.

That pic pretty much answers my question. Sucks you'll have to find something else to do instead of working. Am confident you'll cope though.

Despite Dahlia not forecast to make landfall, wave heights will still increase along the northwest shelf of Western Australia. It is advisable to stay up to date with the latest TC bulletin from the Bureau of Meteorology at
