Severe Tropical Cyclone Owen is evident over the Gulf of Carpentaria with
associated primary convective bands generating showers and thunderstorms across
the north.  

Extensive cloud from Queensland east coast to eastern NSW and adjacent Tasman
Sea is associated with an low pressure trough from Queensland NT all the way
down to Victoria. Furthermore a low pressure in the south, coupled with an upper
low and a moist northerly flow east of the trough continue to produce showers
and thunderstorms over Victoria, NSW and through Bass Strait.  

An area of low cloud over southern South Australia is due to onshore southerly
flow. The remainder of continent remains relatively cloud free due to a high
pressure system in the Bight.
