Tropical Cyclone Debbie (category 2) located to the east northeast of
Townsville. The rotation of this system can clearly be seen in the impressive
and extensive mass of cloud over the Coral Sea.

Tropical Cyclone Caleb (category 1) is currently situated to the southwest of
Indonesia in the Indian Ocean. TC Caleb is part of an active monsoon trough
which is producing extensive areas of thunderstorm activity across the north and
northwest of the country. Another low is located off the Kimberley coast of WA.

Further south, a surface trough is producing a band of mid-level cloud reaching
from SA into the southeast of the country. 

The next cold front can be seen from SW of WA to Southern Ocean.
