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
low 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. 

A trough extends from the Cape York Peninsula in Queensland, to southeast
Queensland. There is convection associated with this trough. Another trough is
located in northeast New South Wales.

A trough extends north from a heat low near the Victoria and New South Wales
border, and out into into the Tasman Sea, north of Sydney.

A ridge in the Bight is driving moist onshore flow, which is producing areas of
low cloud through southern and southeastern parts of the coastal areas and
adjacent regions. 

The rest of the country is mostly cloud free.
