Ex-Tropical Cyclone Debbie is located over the Central Highlands and Coalfields
district and is tracking slowly southwards. Widespread cloud with areas of rain
and thunderstorms continue to affect central and southern districts of
Queensland. High level cloud is streaming away from this system over southern
Queensland and northern NSW.

An active trough is producing extensive thunderstorm activity from the Top End
to the Pilbara. The large area of cloud over eastern WA is the remnants of
overnight thunderstorms.

Low cloud is affecting southern coastal WA and coastal SA in a southerly
airstream.

A strong cold front moving across the Bight stretches from the the Eyre
Peninsula (SA) to western Tasmania. Patchy cloud behind the front indicates a
pool of very cold air. Isolated thunderstorms are occurring along the front and
in the cold pool.
