A cold front is clearing the eastern seaboard. Its middle level cloud band now
barely stretches back to northeast SA.

Thunderstorm activity has broken out over the NT, the northern half of WA and
also about southeast QLD and northeast NSW.

Enhanced tropical convection over the Coral Sea is gradually pushing onto the
North Queensland coast.

Areas of thick smoke, appearing as low cloud, can be seen over eastern NSW and
parts of southeast QLD.
