Cloud and thunderstorm activity over the central and southeastern parts of
Western Australia, northwestern South Australia and into the Great Australian
Bight is associated with Ex-Tropical Cyclone 'Kelvin' and a surface trough. 

Another surface trough extends from the central parts of Western Australia
through the southern parts of the Northern Territory to the central and
southeast parts of Queensland. Moist and unstable airmass to the north of the
trough is causing areas of thunderstorms.

Ex-Tropical Cyclone 'Gita' with associated cloud and rain can be seen to the
east of New Zealand.

A ridge of high pressure to the south of the continent is responsible for areas
of low cloud along the coasts of New South Wales, eastern Victoria and Tasmania
and southern Western Australia.
