Ex-Tropical Cyclone Debbie is located over inland central Queensland near Dalby
and is slowly tracking southeastwards. Widespread cloud with areas of heavy rain
and embedded thunderstorms leading to heavy rainfall, flooding and destructive
winds continues to affect central and southern districts of Queensland and
northern NSW. 

Afternoon thunderstorms are occurring across Cape York and along a trough from
the Gulf Country to the western Top End and across to the Kimberley coast.

Low cloud is affecting southern coastal SA, southern Victoria and Tasmania in a
cold southerly airstream that has moved across in the wake of a cold front. The
cold front is currently pushing along the northern NSW coast and into the Tasman
Sea, with isolated showers and thunderstorms occurring along the frontal
boundary and in the cold airmass behind the system.

Another strong cold front is crossing southern Bight waters towards Tasmania.

Apart from an extensive area of middle level cloud over central WA, which is the
remnant of the last 24 hours of thunderstorm activity, the interior of the
continent is largely cloud-free under a ridge of high pressure.
