Severe Tropical Cyclone "Frances" is located off the Kimberley coast of Western
Australia with frequent thunderstorm activity, with high level cloud streaming
off across northern WA, the central Northern Territory into Northern Queensland.

A southerly airflow is maintaining low level cloud patches along the New South
Wales and Queensland coasts, as well as over much of Victoria, and southeast
South Australia. A weak low offshore over the southern Coral Sea is causing an
area of isolated thunderstorms.

Patchy middle and high level cloud is streaming from a low over the northern
Indian Ocean to the west coast of WA. Patchy middle level cloud also covers much
of Central Australia, South Australia and southern WA from an upper trough over
central WA.

Patchy low and middle level cloud is seen covering Tasmania from a weak cold
front.
