Severe Tropical Cyclone 'Freddy' is situated well off the coast of Northern
Western Australia in the Indian Ocean. A second tropical low lies to the east of
Australia in the Coral Sea. Both systems have bands of convective cloud
surrounding them.

A trough extending across the Top End, into a low in the Gulf of Carpentaria and
across into the Coral Sea is associated with scattered cloud with embedded
convection to the north of the trough.

A broad layer of cloud is present to the north of a trough that extends from
central Northern Territory into southwest Queensland and into central New South
Wales. This cloud covers most of Queensland and parts of the Northern Territory.

Low level cloud is present over southwest WA and along the coastlines of eastern
Tasmania, Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland due to moist onshore flow. 

The rest of the country is mostly cloud free.
