The monsoon trough and a low in the Coral Sea are triggering an extensive area
of showers and thunderstorms.

A low pressure system near the base of Cape York Peninsula and a trough across
the tropical north of the country are generating shower and thunderstorm
activity over northern and western Queensland and northern parts of the NT and
WA.

A high pressure ridge over the south of the continent is maintaining mostly
clear conditions across most areas to the south. Patchy low cloud visible near
the coastal parts of NSW and Queensland is associated with a moist southeasterly
flow. Isolated thunderstorms have formed near the southern NSW coast.

A cloud band associated with a cold front has moved past Tasmania, with some low
cloud passing over Tasmania and high cloud crossing parts of South Australia,
Victoria and NSW.

  • From 4 Dec 2015 MTSAT data is no longer received via direct broadcast. The Bureau continues to receive MTSAT imagery via FTP, however this has a greater latency. Please use the new high resolution satellite viewer for superior performance.
