A humid and unstable air mass is resulting in extensive shower and thunderstorm
activity across the Top End and about the Gulf of Carpentaria. A broad area of
low pressure exists over the inteior of the continent with a series of surface
troughs triggering showers and thunderstorms. The main thunderstorm activity is
visible through western Queensland, central Australia and western districts of
South Australia. 

High pressure is maintaining clear skies across the southeast of the country.
Patchy high cloud is evident about the coast of South Australia and western
Victoria while southerly winds are bringing patchy low cloud to the far
southwest of Western Australia. Further east, a band of cloud is evident over
the Coral Sea which extends further southeast. This is associated with a surface
trough connected to an intense low pressure system near the south island of New
Zealand.
