Extensive cloud with embedded thunderstorm activity is affecting eastern
Queensland, northeast New South Wales 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.

Cloud is streaming from the Pilbara region of WA, poleward to a low well south
of Tasmania. This cloud is the remnants of a weakening cold front. A second
front further west is approaching the southwest Western Australia coast. The
cold air behind the front can be seen evident by the speckled cellular clouds. 

Some isolated thunderstorm activity can be seen near Darwin and also about
Kimberley region. Typical storm activity for this time of the year.
