The dominant feature in the tropical north of the country is the active monsoon
trough, which is causing convective cloud and thunderstorms and has several
embedded lows. The low in the Gulf of Carpentaria is continuing to develop, with
areas of deep convective cloud and lightning increasing.

A large mid to high level cloud band stretches from the tropical north towards
the southeast, associated with a series of surface troughs and an approaching
cold front and low pressure complex. Low cloud is trailing behind the trough and
frontal system over Tas, Vic and southern SA.

Moist onshore flow is bringing low level cloud to southwest WA and the Qld
coast.
