Tropical Cyclone Trevor is located over the eastern Gulf of Carpentaria. Deep
convective cloud is observed rotating around this Cyclone, with high and middle
level cloud extending across the Gulf of Carpentaria, north Queensland, and off
the Queensland east coast. An extensive area of thunderstorms is also observed
across northern parts of the Northern Territory.

Severe Tropical Cyclone Veronica is moving slowly off the Pilbara coast of
Western Australia. Widespread thunderstorm activity extends over a large area of
the ocean near Veronica, in the vicinity of a monsoon trough.

An area of of middle level cloud with isolated thunderstorms is over southern
WA, triggered by a combination of a surface trough and middle level disturbance.
Some high and middle level cloud is streaming to the east from this system
across southern South Australia, New South Wales, Victoria and Tasmania.
Thunderstorms have developed over parts of eastern Victoria, northwest Victoria
and southwest New South Wales.

A slow moving upper low and surface trough is generating a band of cloud with
embedded thunderstorms over the Tasman Sea.

A broad high pressure ridge south of the continent continues to direct a light
easterly flow across southeastern Australia, with patchy low cloud about coastal
areas.
