Extensive cloud band with embedded areas of thunderstorm activity is over the
Kimberley and the Pilbara/Gascoyne region of Western Australia.

High and middle level cloud from the WA southern interior is streaming
southeastward on to South Australia. A strong upper level trough just west of WA
is helping to generate this extensive cloud band.

Low level cloud covers central NSW coastal areas. 

Thunderstorm activity continues over the tropical north of the country
especially about the Gulf country and central part of Northern Territory.
