Scattered thunderstorm activity can be seen about the northern tropical parts of the country associated with an active monsoon trough. Particularly intense thunderstorm activity is associated with Ex-Tropical Cyclone "Gillian" in the Gulf of Carpentaria and also with Tropical Cyclone "Hadi" east of Townsville.
A trough through inland parts of WA connects to a cold front near Tasmania. This trough is triggering isolated thunderstorm activity embedded in a mid level cloud band through parts of central and southeast WA, coastal South Australia, Victoria and the Tasman Sea.
