Showers and thunderstorms remain active across the Kimberley, northern half of
the Northern Territory and from northwest to central Queensland. A broad area of
low pressure combined with tropical moisture is generating this weather. Middle
and high level cloud is streaming over central Australia and western Queensland
due to an upper level trough.

Further south, showers and thunderstorms extend along a low pressure trough
through the interior of Western Australia to the Bight. A weakening cold front
is moving over the southwest of the state while another front is visible over
the Southern Ocean.

Low cloud with isolated showers is present along the NSW coast. Mostly clear
skies persist over the remainder of southeastern Australia with a high pressure
system located to the southeast of Tasmania.
