Severe Tropical Cyclone 'Freddy' is situated well off the coast of Northern
Western Australia in the Indian Ocean. A second tropical low lies to the east of
Australia in the Coral Sea. Both systems have bands of convective cloud
surrounding them.

A broad layer of cloud with embedded convection is present to the north of a
trough that extends from central Northern Territory into southwest Queensland
and into central New South Wales. This cloud covers most of Queensland and parts
of the Northern Territory.

A thin band of high level cloud aligns with a trough that extends northwest from
the southeastern coastline of Western Australia up into the Pilbara district of
Western Australia.

Low level cloud is present over southwest WA and along the coastlines of eastern
Tasmania, Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland. 

The rest of the country is mostly cloud free.
