Tropical Cyclone Caleb is currently situated to the southwest of Indonesia in
the Indian Ocean. TC Caleb is part of an active monsoon trough which is
producing extensive areas of thunderstorm activity across the north and
northwest of the country. Another low is located off the Kimberley coast of WA.

A tropical low pressure system in the Coral Sea is producing an impressive mass
of cloud with embedded thunderstorm activity. This low is expected to intensify
and become a tropical cyclone this afternoon. 

Further south, a surface trough is producing an extensive band of mid-level
cloud reaching from southern WA into the southeast of the country. Some
high-level cloud can be seen over parts of NSW ahead of this cloud band.

The next cold front can be seen approaching WA from the southwest.
