Extensive cloud with embedded thunderstorm activity is over the Coral Sea and
adjacent Queensland coast. This is due to a surface low pressure trough near the
Queensland coast combining with an upper level disturbance to the west.

Cloud is streaming from central Western Australia to south of Tasmania. This is
associated with the remnants of a cold front. A second stronger cold front
stretches southward from southern WA. The cold air behind this front can be seen
in the "speckled" cloud to its west.

Some isolated thunderstorm activity is near Darwin.
