Ex-Tropical Cyclone Debbie is located over inland central Queensland near
Emerald and is slowly tracking southwards. Widespread cloud with areas of rain
and embedded thunderstorms leading to heavy rainfall, flooding and destructive
winds continues to affect central and southern districts of Queensland. High
level banded cloud is streaming away from this system over southern Queensland
and northern NSW.

Elsewhere an active inland trough over far northwest Australia is producing
extensive thunderstorm activity from the Northern Territory's Top End to the
Pilbara District, WA. The extensive area of middle level cloud that blankets the
Pilbara District through to the Southern Interior District is the remnant of the
last 24hours of thunderstorm activity.

Low cloud is affecting southern coastal WA and coastal SA in a cold southerly
airstream that has moved across in the wake of a cold front. The cold front is
currently pushing into NSW with isolated showers and thunderstorms occurring
along the frontal boundary and in the cold airmass behind the system.
