Severe Tropical Cyclone Trevor (Category 3) is located just south of Lockhart
River and is moving slowly westward. Heavy rain and thunderstorm areas are in
the immediate vicinity of Trevor while a separate band of showers and
thunderstorms is affecting the northern Gulf of Carpentaria. High level cloud is
streaming further south from this system across the remainder of north
Queensland. A slow moving tropical low is located northwest of Broome and is
producing showers and thunderstorms. The monsoon trough is aligned through this
system remaining offshore from the northwest of WA. The monsoon trough also
extends across far north Queensland to Severe Tropical Cyclone Trevor and over
the northern Coral Sea.

Further south, a slow moving upper low and associated surface trough is
generating showers and thunderstorms off the northern NSW coast. A high pressure
ridge south of the continent continues to direct an easterly flow across the
remainder of southeastern Australia with patchy low cloud. 

To the west, showers and thunderstorms are active near a trough from the south
coast near Albany extending through the Gascoyne to the inland Pilbara. Patchy
middle and high level cloud continues to drift over the WA interior.
