Showers and thunderstorms are active across the Kimberley and Top End due to a
humid unstable airmass and low pressure trough. Cloud is streaming from this
region southeastward over Queensland including northern parts of New South Wales
where further isolated showers and thunderstorms are currently active. Another
cloud band with embedded showers and thunderstorms extends over the Tasman Sea
and is associated with a complex cold front and low pressure system.

Cloud associated with Tropical Cyclone "Kate" can be seen northwest of Western
Australia near Cocos Island.
