A broad area of low pressure extends from northern WA, across the northern NT
and through Queensland to northeastern New South Wales. This is generating areas
of mid-level cloud with embedded thunderstorms over large areas of northern and
eastern Australia.

A cloud band associated with a cold front can be seen moving from Tasmania and
Victoria into the Tasman Sea.
