Ex-Tropical Cyclone Debbie is located over inland central Queensland near
Rolleston and is slowly tracking southeastwards. Widespread cloud with areas of
rain and embedded thunderstorms leading to heavy rainfall, flooding and
destructive winds continues to affect central and southern districts of
Queensland. High level banded cloud is streaming away from this system over
southern Queensland and northern NSW.

Isolated thunderstorms are occurring northwest of Darwin and off the Pilbabra
coast. The extensive area of middle level cloud that blankets the Pilbara
District through to the Southern Interior District is the remnant of the last
24hours of thunderstorm activity.

Low cloud is affecting southern coastal WA, SA, southern Victoria and Tasmania
in a cold southerly airstream that has moved across in the wake of a cold front.
The cold front is currently pushing along the NSW coast and into the Tasman Sea,
with isolated showers and thunderstorms occurring along the frontal boundary and
in the cold airmass behind the system.
