Thunderstorms extend over northern Australia with more enhanced activity over
the Carpentaria district of NT. Humid northwest to northeasterly winds are
feeding into a broad low pressure trough with a slow moving tropical low over
the Carpentaria NT.

Another low pressure trough extends from NT and links with a strong cold front
moving across the Tasman Sea. Thunderstorms are active near the trough through
the NT, the southern interior of QLD and northeast NSW.

Further south, embbeded thunderstorms are evident along the strong cold front
moving across the Tasman Sea. A westerly airstream with areas of low cloud lies
over the southern agricultural areas of SA, southern Victoria and Tasmania.

A high pressure ridge lies over southern districts of Western Australia. Another
high pressure ridge across the Tasman Sea and Coral Sea is directing a north to
northeast airstream over most of QLD and northeast NSW.
