Extensive cloud with embedded 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
level disturbance to the west.

Cloud is streaming from the Pilbara region of WA, poleward to a low well south
of Tasmania. This cloud is associated with the remnants of a weakening cold
front. A second front further west extends over the far southwest corner of
Western Australia. The cold air behind this front is evident by the speckled
cellular clouds that spread back over the Indian Ocean. 

Some isolated thunderstorm activity can be seen near Darwin and is typical storm
activity for this time of the year in the Tropics,
