Thunderstorm activity continues over the Tropical north of the country. A trough
of low pressure extends from near the Top End through central Queensland to the
eastern parts of NSW.

Areas of active thunderstorms and patchy areas of cloud cover much of Western
Australia and South Australia, and are associated with a broad area of low
pressure. The low pressure troughs over the Bight have generated an extensive
area of middle-level cloud that extends east over western NSW and Tasmania and

Remainder of the country remains mostly clear.
