Tropical Cyclone "Marcus" (Category 2) is over the north Kimberley coast. Heavy
rain and thunderstorm areas are occurring with this system. The monsoon trough
extends from "Marcus" across Torres Strait and into the northwest Coral Sea.
Showers and storms are active about the Gulf of Carpentaria and northern
peninsula of QLD. Trade flow continues to drive patchy low level cloud to parts
of the QLD coastline.

Further south, middle and high level cloud extending from southern NSW, through
eastern VIC and across TAS with isolated embedded thunderstorm activity. This is
due to a strong jet stream and an upper trough. A strong cold front is aligned
on the rear edge of this cloud band and is moving through southwestern NSW and
eastern VIC then extending further south. A pronounced pool of cold air with
isolated thunderstorms is behind the front as evidenced by the speckled cloud.
Onshore winds are directing low level cloud onto the southern WA coastline.

The interior of the continent is mostly clear.
