Widespread showers and thunderstorms extend over central and northern QLD and
also over the eastern Barkly and eastern Carpentaria districts of the NT. Heavy
falls are occurring over northwest QLD. A slow moving tropical low lies over the
Gulf Country with an associated trough aligned across the Herbert and Lower
Burdekin to the northern Coral Sea. A warm and humid west to northwesterly flow
persists to the north of this trough. 

Areas of showers and thunderstorms are evident near a trough through western
QLD, northeastern SA to northern NSW. Isolated thunderstorms are also active
about the Kimberley coast and eastern Pilbara.

A high pressure system in the Bight is maintaining mostly clear skies over much
of southern Australia. A westerly airstream and middle level trough is resulting
in patchy middle and high level cloud moving over southern and eastern Victoria
and Tasmania.
