Issued at 6:12 pm EDT Tuesday on 17 October 2017

Extensive cloud with thunderstorm activity is affecting eastern Queensland,
northeast New South Wales and the Coral Sea. This is due to a surface low
pressure trough near the Queensland coast combining with an upper disturbance to
the west.

Cloud is streaming poleward south of Adelaide. This is the remnants of a
weakening cold front. A second front further west is approaching the southwest
Western Australia coast.

Some isolated thunderstorm activity can be seen near Darwin and also about
Kimberley region.
