A low pressure system over the southern Gulf of Carpentaria and a surface are
responsible for an area of middle level cloud and embedded thunderstorms across
the Gulf Country and Peninsula districts.
An upper level trough combining with a humid easterly airflow is generating a
middle level cloud band which can be seen extending from central and southern
Queensland and through to northeastern New South Wales.
A broad area of high pressure located near Tasmania is directing onshore
easterly winds and bringing areas of low level cloud along coastal parts of
Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland.
Further east, Tropical Cyclone Hola can be seen passing over Vanuatu and
tracking towards the southwest.
