The monsoon trough is extending out of a low pressure system located in the
southern Gulf of Carpentaria, through parts of northern Queensland and out into
the Coral sea. Middle and high level cloud with embedded thunderstorms can be
seen within the vicinity of the low and monsoon trough. 

A broad area of high pressure that's located near Tasmania is bringing an
onshore easterly airflow to the eastern Australian coast and generating low
level cloud along coastal parts of Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland. 

Further west, the humid easterly winds are combining with an upper level trough
and producing a middle level cloud band with thunderstorms over Queensland and
central Australia.

To the east, middle and high level cloud can be seen spiralling around Tropical
Cyclone Hola which is currently located to the north of New Caledonia.
