Notes on significant weather not yet written

Significant rainfall, strong winds, strong wind gusts and abnormally high and low temperatures for this day are given below. Descriptions of significant weather events are added here when time permits and reliable information is available. This is sometimes well after the event!

A tropical low developed off the west Kimberley coast on the 26th and intensified into tropical cyclone Graham on the 27th about 200 kilometres west northwest of Broome. The system tracked to the southeast crossing the Kimberley coast south of Bidyanga at about 10pm on the 28th before weakening over the Great Sandy Desert. Despite winds being recorded in excess of 100 km/h no damage was reported. However, heavy rain at Telfer (175 mm in the 24 hours to 9am on the 1st) caused some minor damage.

On the 28th storms in the Omeo district produced heavy rain and local flooding.
