A broad area of low pressure persist over the western and northern parts of the
continent. A series of surface troughs are triggering showers and thunderstorms
over the interior. A humid and unstable air mass is resulting in the
thunderstorm activity across the Top End and near the Gulf of Carpentaria. 

High pressure is maintaining clear skies across the southeast of the country.
Patchy high cloud is evident about the coast of South Australia while
southwesterly winds are bringing patchy low cloud to the far southwest of
Western Australia. Further east, a band of cloud is evident over the Coral Sea
which extends further southeast. This is associated with a surface trough
connected to an intense low pressure system near the south island of New
Zealand.
