Tropical Cyclone Trevor (Category 2) is located approximately 185km to the east
of Lockhart River and is moving slowly southwest. Heavy rain and thunderstorm
areas are in the immediate vicinity of Trevor while a separate band of shower
and thunderstorms is affecting the eastern Gulf of Carpentaria. High level cloud
is streaming further south from this system across the remainder of north
Queensland. Showers and thunderstorms are active over northern WA and the Top
End with a tropical low located to the northwest of Broome. The monsoon trough
is aligned over waters to the northwest of WA and also across far north
Queensland to Cyclone Trevor towards the northern Coral Sea.

Further south, a slow moving upper low and associated surface trough is
affecting eastern NSW with areas of showers and storms. A small surface low is
embedded on the trough near the central NSW coast. A high pressure ridge south
of Tasmania continues to direct an easterly flow across the remainder of
southeastern Australia with patchy low cloud. Middle and high level cloud is
drifting through the interior of WA across the Bight while a low pressure trough
is generating showers and isolated storms over inland parts of the South West
Land Division.
