Tropical Cyclone "Oma" is situated over the Coral Sea, well away from the
Queensland coast. A large area of convection surrounds the system.

Low level cloud in the cool onshore flow is visible over the NSW coast. 

Low cloud is also visible along the coast of Victoria, South Australia and
Tasmania associated with a southwesterly onshore flow behind the cold front. 

Isolated thunderstorms have developed over the Tropical areas of Australia,
central WA and along the NSW coast in a broad area of low pressure trough.

The remainder of Australia is mostly clear.
