A tropical trough across the NT Top End is linking to a developing tropical low
in the Gulf of Carpentaria. This system is likely to develop into a Tropical
Cyclone tonight or tomorrow morning. Large areas of convective cloud and
thunderstorms are being generated by this system throughout the Gulf, as well as
over Cape York Peninsula. Further thunderstorm activity can be seen over central
and eastern QLD and into the NSW, near a low pressure trough.

Another convective cloud area south of Sumba, Indonesia is associated with a
developing low pressure system, and likely to become a Tropical Cyclone
tomorrow. This sytem will remain away from the Australian mainland and

A broad low pressure area over central and southern WA is generating mid to high
level cloud. Afternoon land heating is responsible for thunderstorm activity
over central-west and northern land areas of the state.

A dominant high pressure system to the southeast of the continent is generating
an onshore easterly airstream with patchy low cloud along the east coast.
