Tropical Cyclone Caleb 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.

A surface trough extends from a low pressure system over the eastern Gascoyne
district down into the Bight. This trough is producing an extensive mid-level
cloud band with high cloud streaming ahead of it into South Australia, Victoria
and Tasmania.

A low pressure system in the Coral Sea is producing an extensive area of cloud
with embedded thunderstorm activity.

The central and eastern interior of the continent is mostly cloud free under a
ridge of high pressure.
