Ex-Tropical Cyclone "Esther" lies within the monsoon trough over the NT's Top
End. Large areas of convective cloud and thunderstorms are being generated by
this system across northern Australia. Another trough of low pressure is helping
generate a large area of active thunderstorms extending from northeastern NSW
through QLD and then linking back into the monsoon trough.

Another convective cloud area can be seen off the northwest coast of WA and is
associated with Severe Tropical Cyclone "Ferdinand". While a strong cold front
and associated middle level cloudband can now be seen moving offshore and
passing through the Tasman Sea.

A trough of low pressure over western WA has produced a patchy cloud band with
embedded thunderstorms over southwestern WA. While low cloud can be seen along
much of the southern WA, SA, Victorian and Tasmanian coast associated with a
moist onshore flow from a dominant ridge of high pressure located in the
Southern Ocean.
