A broad area of low pressure covers most of northern and eastern Australia. A
trough extends from northern WA, through the interior of the NT and southwest
QLD to northeast NSW. The trough then extends further to a low pressure over the
Tasman Sea. The instability associated with the trough combined with a warm
moist airmass is resulting in middle level cloud with widespread showers and
thunderstorms across most of the country including through northern WA, southern
NT, SA, southern QLD, NSW and northern VIC.

Regions of QLD and the NT northeast of the trough are mainly hot and dry with
isolated thunderstorms near southeast QLD.

A monsoon trough and a weak tropical low south of Java are enhancing the shower
and thunderstorm activity in the region.
