A broad cloud band extends from northern parts of the Territory to northeastern
New South Wales and is associated with a trough. Isolated thunderstorms remain
embedded within the cloud band about the Top End and Gulf Country. Isolated
diurnal thunderstorms can also be seen about parts of Tropical North Queensland.

The remainder of Australia is mostly cloud free. Severe Tropical Cyclone "Kate"
continues to move further away from the Cocos Islands while a developing cold
front is moving over waters to the south of the Great Australian Bight.
