Extensive cloud with embedded thunderstorms extends from the Kimberley region
across the base of the Top End and the southern Gulf of Carpentaria into the
north Qld coast near Cairns. This cloud is associated with an active monsoon
trough across the interior of the continent. 

Clouds associated with onshore tradewinds persist along the eastern seaboard
north of Cape Byron to the monsoonal cloud near Cairns,

A large low pressure area and associated surface trough extends from central WA
into SA, western NSW and VIC connects with a low south of TAS, producing a band
of cloud with embedded thunderstorms throughout most of southeastern Australia.

Moist onshore flow is generating low cloud over the coastal fringe of the Great
Australian Bight to the southwest tip of WA.
