Tropical Cyclone "Oma" is situated over the Coral Sea, well away from the
Queensland coast. A large area of convection including thunderstorms surrounds
the system. Middle to high level cloud can be seen streaming to the south from
the cyclone.

A ridge of high pressure over southern Australia is directing a moist onshore
flow over NSW. This has led to low level cloud along the coast and Dividing

Low cloud is also visible along the coast of Victoria, South Australia and
Tasmania associated with a southwesterly wind flow. 

A broad trough of low pressure over the interior of WA and across the northern
and eastern parts of the continent is producing areas of thunderstorms.

The remainder of Australia is mostly clear due to a break in the monsoon and
also ridges of high pressure in the south.
