Ex-Tropical Cyclone "Trevor" is currently located well inland near the NT and
QLD border. Extensive cloud with areas of thunderstorms continue to circulate
around the low. Thick middle and high level cloud is being pulled to the
southeast by a strong cold front and trough which extends from southeast
Queensland to the Tasman Sea. Speckled, cellular cloud to the west of the front
indicates the colder air mass that is pushing over Victoria and Tasmania.

Ex-Tropical Cyclone "Veronica" is located close to the Pilabara coast of WA.
Patchy high cloud can be seen circulating around the system and extending
towards the southeast. Thunderstorms across northern parts of WA and the NT are
being generated by a series of low pressure troughs.

A moist onshore airstream associated with a ridge of high pressure is bringing
low cloud to the southern WA and SA coastlines. Patchy high cloud is streaming
across southwest WA from the Indian Ocean.
