Tropical Cyclone Debbie (category 1) currently sits approximately 600km to the
east of Townsville. The rotation of this system can clearly be seen in the
impressive 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 an extensive band of mid-level
cloud reaching from southern WA into the southeast of the country. Some
high-level cloud can be seen over parts of NSW ahead of this cloud band.

The next cold front can be seen approaching WA from the southwest.
