The monsoon trough over the Indian Ocean links to Tropical Cyclone Marian, which
is just off the chart west of WA.

A separate branch of the monsoon trough stretches over the Coral Sea. It extends
eastward from a developing Tropical Low off the Cairns coast. This low is
generating deep convection with embedded thunderstorms. Cloud is also "spilling"
southeastward from this low over southeast QLD and northeast NSW.

An inland trough over central WA is generating cloud across much of the southern
and eastern inland parts of WA and the Nullarbor.
