The Monsoon Trough stretches over tropical, northern Australia and is driving
enhanced convective activity over the country's far north with particular focal
points over the Territory's Top End and others near two low pressure systems one
of which is located near Cape York Peninsula while the other is offshore from
WA's far north coast. Both low pressure systems are being closely monitored with
the low offshore from the Kimberley coast expected to intensify into a Tropical
Cyclone during Thursday. http://www.bom.gov.au/wa/forecasts/nwcyclone.shtml

Elsewhere the country is largely dominated by a broad area of low pressure with
frequent thunderstorm activity continuing over central and eastern parts of the
country, mostly across past of NSW and southern QLD.

Across WA an active inland trough is triggering an extensive cloud band over
central to eastern parts of the state with embedded thunderstorms within the
cloud band. A deepening low pressure system lies just offshore, south of the
Southwest Land Division with an associated developing cold front over the far
southwest corner of WA.
