Extensive shower and thunderstorm activity continues across the north,
particularly associated with Tropical Cyclone Owen over the Gulf of Carpentaria.

Widespread thunderstorm activity is also occurring over the central east of the
continent. This is due to moisture being "dragged" southward ahead of a strong
cold front and an upper air disturbance. The cold front is nearing Adelaide.

A large pool of cold air behind the front lies south of the Bight and an area of
low cloud is over southern Western Australia.
