A humid and unstable air mass combined with an active Monsoon Trough over
northern NT is resulting in extensive shower and thunderstorm activity across
the Kimberley, Top End and the Gulf of Carpentaria. 

Elsewhere a broad area of low pressure extends through the interior of the
continent with a surface trough triggering showers and thunderstorms through
central parts of WA, southern NT and northern SA.  

Showers are slowly clearing eastern VIC, southern NSW and northwestern Tasmania
as a cold front and middle level cloud band moves into the Tasman Sea.

A ridge of high pressure is moving into the Bight, leaving southern WA cloud
free.
