Cloud and thunderstorm activity over the Kimberley and Pilbara regions of
Western Australia is associated with Tropical Cyclone Kelvin. A broad area of
low pressure extends from southern Western Australia to the Northern Territory
Top End producing further cloud and thunderstorm activity across much of the
western and central parts of the country.

Middle level cloud, associated with a surface and middle level trough, can be
seen extending from western New South Wales through Victoria to Tasmania. While
thunderstorms over central Queensland are associated with a surface trough. 

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