The Monsoon Trough stretches over tropical, northern Australia and is driving
enhanced convective activity over the country's far north with particular focal
points over the Territory's Top End and two low pressure systems. One low is
located near Cape York Peninsula while the other is offshore from WA's far north
coast. This second low was named a category one tropical cyclone just after
0900AEST this morning. Both Tropical Cyclone "Riley" and the low near Cape York
will be closely monitored over the coming days.

Further south, a broad low pressure system to the south of Western Australia is
dominating the weather in the west. A feed of tropical moisture can be seen in
the form of a cloud band linking Tropical Cyclone Riley to the low in the Bight.
Low cloud is impacting southwestern parts of WA in the lows wake.

The remainder of the country remains relatively cloud free under the influence
of a high in the Tasman Sea however a moist onshore flow is producing some low
level cloud along the NSW coast.
