Scattered thunderstorm activity can be seen about the eastern Top End, the Gulf of Carpentaria and the Coral Sea associated with an active monsoon trough. Particularly intense thunderstorm activity is associated with Tropical Cyclone "Gillian" in the Gulf of Carpentaria and also with tropical Cyclone "Hadi" in the Coral Sea east of Townsville.
Isolated thunderstorms can also be seen off the southeast coast of New South Wales. A trough through inland parts of WA connects to a cold front moving through the Great Australian Bight. This trough and front is triggering isolated thunderstorm activity embedded in a band of mid level cloud through parts of central and southeast WA, coastal South Australia, southwest Victoria, Bass Strait and Tasmania.
