Ex-Tropical Cyclone "Esther" lies within the monsoon trough to the southwest of
the Gulf of Carpentaria. Large areas of convective cloud and thunderstorms are
being generated by this system across northern Australia. Another convective
cloud area can be seen off the northwest coast of WA and is associated with
Severe Tropical Cyclone "Ferdinand".

A broad easterly flow across eastern Australia is advecting a humid tropical
airmass and areas of low cloud over much of Queensland, eastern NSW and
Victoria. While a strong cold front and associated middle level cloudband is
crossing Tasmania and Bass Strait.

An inland trough of low pressure over western WA has produced patchy cloud band
with embedded thunderstorms over southwestern WA.
