Scattered thunderstorm activity can be seen about northern tropical areas and over the Coral Sea. Particularly intense activity is associated with Tropical Cyclone "Gillian" and also with a developing tropical low in the Coral Sea northeast of Townsville.
Isolated thunderstorms are also occurring over central Australia, over the far southeast of New South Wales. A trough through inland parts of WA connects to a cold front moving into the Great Australian Bight. The trough is also triggering isolated thunderstorm activity through parts of the southeast of WA.
