Middle to high level cloud streaming across the central and eastern parts of the
continent is associated with an upper level trough and a jetstream. Embedded
thunderstorm activity can be seen within this cloud band over the central NT and
the interior of WA.

A broad mid level cloud band associated with a cold front is approaching
Tasmania from the west. A large pool of cold air behind this front remains over
the southern waters.

Thunderstorms visible across the Top End of the Northern Territory and over the
Arafura/Timor Sea area are caused by the humid easterly wind flow.
