Cloud and thunderstorm activity over the central and southeastern parts of
Western Australia and western parts of South Australia is associated with
Ex-Tropical Cyclone 'Kelvin'. 

Middle level cloud ahead of an upper trough, can be seen stretching across the
southern parts of South Australia and to the west of Tasmania. 

A surface trough extends from the central parts of Western Australia through the
southern parts of the Northern Territory to central Queensland. Moist and
unstable airmass to the north of the trough is causing areas of thunderstorms.

An upper low over southeast Queendland is causing mostly middle level cloud with
isolated embedded thunderstorms. 

A ridge of high pressure to the south of the continent is responsible for areas
of low cloud along the coasts of New South Wales, eastern Victoria and Tasmania
and southern Western Australia.
