Heavy rain and squally thunderstorms are occurring over the southern Gulf of
Carpentaria and parts of north Queensland. A tropical low is located near
Normanton in the Gulf Country and is moving slowly south. Widespread showers and
isolated thunderstorms extend over remaining parts of central and northern QLD
and also over the eastern Barkly and eastern Carpentaria districts of the NT.
Isolated thunderstorms are visible over central parts of the NT with patchy
cloud in the vicinity of a trough through western QLD to northern NSW.

A high pressure system over the Bight is maintaining mostly clear skies over
much of southern Australia. A westerly airstream and middle level trough is
resulting in patchy cloud across Tasmania. Thunderstorms are occurring about the
Mid North Coast of NSW near a low pressure trough.
