Severe Tropical Cyclone "Oma" is situated over the Coral Sea, well away from the
Queensland coast. A large area of convection surrounds the system.

A weakening middle level cloud band with isolated thunderstorms extends from off
the northern coast of NSW towards the South Island of New Zealand. Low level
cloud in the cool onshore flow following the front is visible over the NSW coast
and eastern Victoria. 

Extensive low and middle level cloud is crossing Tasmania, southwest Victoria
and South Australia from the west ahead of a cold front.

Middle level cloud and thunderstorms through northern and central WA, northern
NT and northeastern Queensland are triggered by low pressure troughs.

The remainder of Australia is mostly clear.
