A broad cloud band extends from over the Timor Sea through central parts of the
NT and on through northeastern New South Wales. This cloud is associated with an
upper trough. Embedded thunderstorms remain over northern parts of the Territory
and isolated thunderstorms can also be seen about the far north of the Kimberley
region in Western Australia.

A weak cold front and its associated cloud band is moving across the far
southwest of Tasmania. Remaining parts of Australia are mostly cloud free.

Severe Tropical Cyclone "Kate" is located to the west of the Cocos Islands and
is slowly moving further southwest.
