Severe Tropical Cyclone Trevor is located over the Gulf of Carpentaria with
widespread thunderstorm activity. The main outflow band of middle to high level
cloud streaming eastwards over the Coral Sea towards New Caledonia.

Severe Tropical Cyclone Veronica is offshore of the WA Pilbara coast.
Thunderstorm activity extends over a large area of the ocean near Veronica. An
upper level trough moving over WA is generating middle level cloud that connects
back towards Veronica and extends southeast over South Australia.

A trough connecting the two cyclones is providing enough instability to generate
isolated showers and storms over the Northern Territory's Top End.   

Elsewhere thunderstorms are active over off-shore from the NSW coast and far
southeast QLD coast. Further west patchy middle level cloud extends over far
southern QLD.  

A thick middle level cloud band with embedded thunderstorms extends over
southeastern Australia stretching down towards the Southern Ocean, associated
with a cold front and pre-frontal trough. 
 
Low cloud developing over the far southwest corner of WA in a moist onshore
airstream.
