Bands of cloud are circling a low pressure complex over Tasmania, eastern Bass
Strait and the Tasman Sea. Cloud is spiralling over Tasmania, southern Victoria
and adjacent waters of the eastern Bight, Bass Strait and the Tasman Sea.

The remnants of Tropical Cyclone Nathan lies just off the far north Kimberley
coast. Middle level cloud is streaming southward over the NT and northeast of
WA. Active thunderstorms are visible over the Top End of the NT and northern
parts of the Kimberley in WA. Isolated thunderstorms are also evident over the
far northwest tropics of Queensland.

Thunderstorms are also active from the Gascoyne region south to Perth, and along
a surface trough over inland Queensland although they have mostly subsided in
this region overnight.
