A broad area of low pressure extends from northern WA, across the northern NT
and through Queensland to northeastern New South Wales. This is generating areas
of mid-level cloud with embedded thunderstorms over large areas of northwestern
Australia and eastern Queensland.

A cloud band associated with a cold front can be seen over the western Tasman
Sea with patchy low cloud over coastal areas of southeastern Australia.
