Cloud and thunderstorm activity over the Kimberley and Pilbara regions of
Western Australia is associated with Tropical Cyclone Kelvin. A surface trough
is extending from the Tropical Cyclone towards the north east and producing
further cloud and thunderstorm activity across the Northern Territory Top End.

Middle and high level cloud can be seen extending from western and central parts
of South Australia and through into western New South Wales and Victoria. The
cloud is associated with both a surface and a middle level trough. Middle and
high level cloud can also be seen further south over Tasmania which is caused by
a passing cold front. 

Thunderstorms and cloud are located across central parts of Queensland which are
associated with a series of inlands troughs. Another trough along the western
coast of Western Australia is also producing isolated thunderstorms. 

To the east of Australia, cloud can be seen spiralling around Tropical Cyclone
Gita which is currently located to the west of Norfolk Island.
