Cloud and thunderstorm activity over the Kimberley and Pilbara regions of
Western Australia is associated with Tropical Cyclone Kelvin. A surface trough
is extending from the Tropical Cyclone towards the north east and producing
further cloud and thunderstorm activity across the Northern Territory Top End.

Middle and high level cloud and isolated thunderstorms can be seen extending
from the central parts of Western Australia to the Great Australian Bight. This
is associated with surface and middle level trough.

Another surface trough located near northern New South Wales and extending
through eastern and central Queensland is producing further cloud and
thunderstorms along the northeast coast of the continent.

To the east of Australia, cloud can be seen spiralling around Tropical Cyclone
Gita which is currently located northwest of Norfolk Island.
