Ex-Tropical Cyclone Debbie is just off the Gold Coast, Queensland and is slowly
tracking southeastwards. A thick cloud band covering the Tasman Sea is
associated with the low pressure system and cold front that is located further
south. Heavy rainfall has eased over land including southeast Queensland and
northeast NSW as Ex-Tropical Cyclone Debbie moves away from the coast. Flooding,
damaging winds and damaging surf conditions continue to affect central and
southern districts of Queensland and northeastern NSW. 

Elsewhere a trough extends across northern Australia from the WA Kimberley
coast, across the base of the NT's Top End and over northern Queensland.
Isolated showers and thunderstorms are being triggered along the trough
including some severe thunderstorm cells over the Territory's daly District.

Low cloud extends along coastal areas of SA, across southern Victoria and parts
of Tasmania in a cold southerly airstream that has moved across the region in
the wake of a cold front that is now located in the Tasman Sea.

Another strong cold front is currently moving through southern Bight waters.

Apart from an extensive area of middle level cloud over central WA the interior
of the continent is largely cloud free under a ridge of high pressure.
