A surface trough over the Pilbara is responsible for the thunderstorm activity
around that area.

A surface trough extends from a low over the Kimberley, through SA to a low near
the SA/Vic border, then past the Tasmanian west coast. Isolated thunderstorms
are occurring along the trough over the continent, but are most prevalent over
western and central Victoria near the southern low.

Cloud over eastern WA and northwestern SA is associated with a jetstream.

A slow-moving high pressure system over the Tasman Sea is directing
southeasterly winds and areas of low cloud onto the northern NSW and QLD coasts.

A surface trough and low pressure system are responsible for thunderstorms over
the Torres Strait and Arafura Sea.

A cold front is crossing the Southern Ocean, with a pool of cold air behind it
indicated by the patchy cloud.
