The monsoon trough is aligned off the northwest coast of WA extending across the
Timor Sea to the Gulf of Carpentaria and is generating thunderstorms. Cloudy
conditions and scattered thunderstorms persist across large parts of northern
Australia. 

Mid level cloud and thunderstorms across central WA is associated with a trough
of low pressure. Southerly winds are bringing areas of low cloud across southern
WA.

Thunderstorm activity in the centre of the continent is linked to an upper level
trough. 

Clear skies are evident across most of southeastern Australia due to a firm
ridge of high pressure.
