An extensive area of cloud with shower and thunderstorm activity in the Coral
Sea is associated with the monsoon trough and tropical Cyclone 'Tatiana'.

An area of low pressure across Cape York Peninsula and the tropical north is
generating shower and thunderstorm activity about northern Queensland and the
far north of the NT and WA.

A high pressure ridge over the south of the continent is maintaining mostly
clear conditions while an upper level trough is generating an area of cloud over
northeast New South Wales.
