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 can be seen extending from central parts of Western
Australia over central and eastern South Australia and into western Victoria and
Tasmania. The cloud is associated with both a surface trough to the north and a
cold front further south which is passing over Tasmania.

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