Tropical Cyclone Caleb is currently situated to the southwest of Indonesia in
the Indian Ocean. TC Caleb is part of an active monsoon trough which is
producing extensive areas of thunderstorm activity across the north and
northwest of the country. Another low is located off the Kimberley coast of WA.

A surface trough extends from a low pressure system over the eastern Gascoyne
district down into the Bight. This trough is producing an extensive area of
middle to high-level cloud extending on to coastal SA, Vic and Tasmania.

A tropical low pressure system in the Coral Sea is producing an impressive mass
of cloud with embedded thunderstorm activity. This low is expected to intensify
and become a tropical cyclone.

The central and eastern interior of the continent remains relatively cloud free
under a ridge of high pressure.
