Large areas of thunderstorm activity are over the Kimberley and the
Pilbara/Gascoyne region, Western Australia.

southeastward on to South Australia. A strong upper level trough just west of WA
is helping to generate this extensive cloud band.

Low level cloud covers central NSW coastal areas. 

Thunderstorm activity continues over the tropical north of the country
especially south of the Gulf of Carpentaria and in the Kimberley region..
