Thunderstorms activity is also extending from the Top End through inland parts
of WA. Middle and high level cloud lies over remaining central and western parts
of the continent.

The monsoon trough is active to the north of the continent with broad areas of
thunderstorm activity, particularly around Tropical Cyclone Trevor northeast of
