Severe Tropical Cyclone Trevor (Category 3) is located approximately 85km east
of Lockhart River and is moving slowly westward. Heavy rain and thunderstorm
areas are in the immediate vicinity of Trevor while a separate band of showers
and thunderstorms are affecting the northern Gulf of Carpentaria. High level
cloud is streaming further south from this system across the remainder of north
Queensland. A slow moving tropical low is located northwest of Broome and is
producing showers and thunderstorms. The monsoon trough is aligned through this
system remaining offshore from the northwest of WA. The monsoon trough also
extends across far north Queensland to Severe Tropical Cyclone Trevor and over
the northern Coral Sea.

Further south, a slow moving upper low and associated surface trough is
generating thunderstorms off the NSW coast. A high pressure ridge south of
Tasmania continues to direct an easterly flow across the remainder of
southeastern Australia with patchy low cloud. 

To the west, active thunderstorms associated with a low pressure system and
trough can be seen over southwest WA, while areas of middle and high level cloud
continues to drift over inland Australia.
