Tropical Cyclone "Oma" sits out over the Coral Sea, well away from the
Queensland coast. A large area of convection surrounds the system.

A cold front with a trough of low pressure just to its east has brought patchy,
middle level cloud to the Victoria and New South Wales border, extending into
the Tasman Sea. A line of active thunderstorms can be seen on the northeastern
flank of this cloud band.

Isolated thunderstorm activity has formed through central QLD, east of the Gulf
of Carpentaria and through the interior of the Northern Territory with the warm
afternoon surface temperatures.

Low cloud over the southern coastline is driven by onshore flow trapped under a
large high pressure ridge.

The remainder of Australia is relatively clear.
