Tropical Cyclone "Marcus" (Category 2) is located offshore from the northwest
Kimberley coast and is moving westwards. Heavy rain and thunderstorm areas are
occurring with this system. The monsoon trough extends from "Marcus" across the
Arafura Sea through Torres Strait to the northwest Coral Sea. Showers and storms
are active about the Gulf of Carpentaria and northern Peninsula district of QLD.

Further south, a strong cold front is moving over TAS and approaching the Bass
Strait. A large area of speckled cloud, with isolated thunderstorms is visible
west of this front. Onshore winds are directing areas of low cloud across the
southern Australia coastline. The interior of the continent is mostly clear.
