Severe Tropical Cyclone "Herman" is located in the Indian Ocean, well south of
Christmas Island.

A significant region of middle and high level cloud covers most of central and
southern Western Australia propagating east through central Australia to the
central Queensland coast.

A heat low on the Northern Territory and and Western Australia border has a heat
trough extending south along the Western Australian coastline, with
thunderstorms associated with it. Another trough extends from the heat low south
along the Western Australia and Northern Territory border with convection
associated with it. A third heat trough extends from the heat low through the
Top End in the Northern Territory, although conditions are mostly settled there.


A trough extends from the Cape York Peninsula in Queensland, to southeast
Queensland. Cloud with embedded isolated thunderstorms associated with this
trough. A trough off the coast of NSW is associated with storms and showers in
the coastal waters of much of NSW.

High level cloud can be seen over the southwest of Tasmania. 

The rest of the country is mostly cloud free.
