Tropical Cyclone Trevor (Category 2) is located over the eastern Gulf of
Carpentaria. Deep convective cloud is observed rotating around this Cyclone,
with high and middle level cloud extending across the northern Gulf of
Carpentaria and north Queensland. An extensive band of thunderstorms is also
observed across the Top End of the Northern Territory.

Severe Tropical Cyclone Veronica (Category 4) is moving slowly off the Pilbara
coast of Western Australia. Widespread thunderstorm activity extends over a
large area of the ocean near Veronica, in the vicinity of a monsoon trough.

An extensive area of thunderstorms is over southern WA, triggered by a
combination of a surface trough and middle level disturbance. High and middle
level cloud is streaming to the east across southern South Australia, New South
Wales, Victoria and Tasmania.

A slow moving upper low and surface trough is generating a band of cloud with
embedded thunderstorms over the Tasman Sea.

A broad high pressure ridge south of the continent continues to direct a light
easterly flow across the remainder of southern Australia, with patchy low cloud
about coastal areas.
