Australian Chart Summary

Sunday - Latest

Severe Tropical Cyclone Veronica is generating destructive winds and flooding rain in the WA Pilbara. Ex-Tropical Cyclone Trevor is still producing heavy rain, storms and damaging winds in eastern NT and western QLD. A trough is bringing patchy rain to inland WA, SA and NSW.

Monday 11:00 EDT

TC Veronica should weaken to a Tropical Low but still cause strong winds and heavy rain in northern WA. A trough will link with the remnants of TC Trevor to scatter rain and storms from central Australia to the southeast. A front will bring a wintry burst to TAS.

Tuesday 11:00 EDT

Tropical lows and troughs (remnants of tropical cyclones) will generate heavy rain and storms and gusty winds in northern WA, the NT and western QLD. A high in the wake of a cold front will cause brisk winds to ease and most showers to clear in southern NSW, VIC, TAS and SA.

Wednesday 11:00 EDT

Troughs will generate widespread rain and storms in QLD, most likely leading to flooding. Troughs will scatter showers and storms across northern NSW, the NT and northern and western WA. A belt of high pressure will keep much of southern Australia dry and cool.

Thursday 11:00 EDT

A trough and low pressure in the east should produce widespread showers and thunderstorms over QLD and northeastern NSW. Another trough and low in the west should bring thunderstorms to northwestern WA. Troughs in the north should bring showers and storms to tropical NT and QLD.

Friday 11:00 EDT

A trough and low pressure system extending from northern WA, the NT, QLD and into northern NSW should produce showers and thunderstorms. A cold front passing over southeastern SA, VIC and TAS should cause showers. High pressure in the southwest should keep skies clear.

Saturday 11:00 EDT

An elongated trough should bring widespread showers and storms to the Top End, southwest and coastal QLD. An approaching cold front looks to trigger showers across TAS and southern VIC. Skies will be clear elsewhere under a large high pressure system.
