Tropical Cyclone Trevor (Category 2) is located between Lockhart River and
Arakun and continues to track slowly to the west southwest. Heavy rain and
thunderstorm areas are in the vicinity of Trevor and extend across the northern
Gulf of Carpentaria and down to the north tropical coast. Tropical Cyclone
Veronica (Category 1) is located approximately 435km northwest of Broome. 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
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 isolated 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
