The large area of cloud over northern WA and the western Top End is associated
with ex Tropical Cyclone "Esther". Ex TC "Esther" is still currently embedded
within the monsoon trough and is a focal point for convection in the region. 

The circular cloud mass off the northwest WA coast is associated with ex
Tropical Cyclone "Ferdinand".

A broad inland trough is bringing cloud and scattered thunderstorms across
western WA. With high cloud from these thunderstorms stream across the Great
Australian Bight. 

A moist and unstable airmass is bringing isolated storms to central and eastern
Queensland. 

The remainder of the country remains mostly clear due to a high pressure system
over the Bight that extends a ridge into central Australia.
