A surface trough and middle level cloudband with some isolated thunderstorms
extend from a low over the Kimberley, through central Australia to Tasmania.

A surface trough and low pressure system are responsible for thunderstorms over
the Torres Strait and Arafura Sea.

High cloud can be seen streaming down off thunderstorms over the Indian Ocean
towards central WA.

A cold front with some low cloud is moving across the Bight and WA south coast,
with a pool of cold air behind it indicated by the patchy cloud.
