Cloudy conditions persist across northern Australia with thunderstorms occuring
near the coast and also about the WA/NT border. The monsoon trough is aligned
off the northwest coast of Western Australia extending across the Timor Sea to
the Gulf of Carpentaria. This is generating extensive shower and storm activity.
High level cloud is visible over southern Queenland while a trough of low
pressure is triggering isolated showers and thunderstorms over the southern
interior of Western Australia. Southerly winds are bringing areas of low cloud
across the South West Land Division. Clear skies are evident across the
southeast of the country due to a firm ridge of high pressure.
