Heavy rain and squally thunderstorms are occurring over the southern Gulf of
Carpentaria and parts of north Queensland. A tropical low is slow moving near
the southern Gulf of Carpentaria coast. 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
thuderstorms are developing over central parts of the NT and near the southern
QLD border.

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 middle and high level cloud drifting over southern NSW,
Victoria and Tasmania. An area of thunderstorms has developed near the mid north
coast of NSW.
