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

Elsewhere an active inland trough over northern Australia is producing extensive
thunderstorm activity from the Northern Territory's Top End to the Pilbara, WA.
The extensive area of middle level cloud over the Pilbara District to Southern
Interior District is the remnant of the last 24hours of thunderstorm activity.

Low cloud is affecting southern coastal WA and coastal SA in a cold southerly
airstream in the wake of a cold front that is currently moving through Victoria
and Tasmania. Isolated showers and thunderstorms are occurring along the front
and in the cold pool behind the system.
