A lot of weather surrounds the monsoon trough and the tropical low stationed
over Normanton in the Gulf Country. 

Heavy rain and squally thunderstorms are occurring over the southern Gulf of
Carpentaria and northwest Queensland. Widespread showers and isolated
thunderstorms extend over remaining parts of central and northern QLD and also
over the eastern Barkly and eastern Carpentaria districts of the NT. Isolated
thunderstorms are also visible over northern parts of the NT.

A high pressure system over western Victoria is maintaining mostly clear skies
over much of southern Australia. Patchy low cloud is evident across the Bass
Strait, while a westerly airstream is producing areas of cloud across Tasmania.
A cold front is visible approaching the southwest of WA.
