The remnants of Tropical Cyclone Nathan are off the Kimberley coast with
extensive cloud and embedded thunderstorms. A broad area of mostly middle level
cloud is streaming from northern WA towards the southeast, through parts of the
Northern Territory, South Australia and New South Wales.

Extensive cloud in the Indian Ocean off the northwest coast is associated with
an upper level disturbance. 

Trough near the west coast of WA is causing isolated shower and thunderstorm
activity. Another trough over central QLD is causing isolated thunderstorms.

Low level cloud over Tasmania is associated with a passing cold front.
