Extensive cloud with thunderstorm activity affects eastern and northern
Queensland and the Coral Sea. This is due to a surface low pressure trough near
the Queensland coast combining with an upper disturbance to the west.

A cloud band, the remnants of a weakening cold front, lies south of the Bight. A
second front further west is approaching the Western Australia coast.

An area of cloud over the Top End, NT has some isolated storm activity with it.
