Extensive cloud with embedded thunderstorms extends from the Kimberley region
across the base of the Top End and into the north Qld coast near Cairns
associated with an active monsoon trough. Moist northerly flow south of the
monsoon trough is also leading to the development of cloud bands with embedded
thunderstorms across central Qld and NSW. 

A large low pressure area and associated surface trough extend from central WA
into SA, Vic and connect with a low south of Tas, producing a band of cloud with
embedded thunderstorms thoughout most of southern Australia.

Moist onshore flow is generating low cloud over the southern coast of WA and
western SA.
