Scattered thunderstorms and showers over the Arafura Sea are associated with a weak tropical low. Isolated thunderstorms and scattered showers over the Gulf of Carpentaria and northeast tropics of Queensland is associated with a broad area of low pressure in conjunction with a trough in the middle levels of the atmosphere.
Middle and high level cloud streaming across central parts WA is associated with a low pressure system located further to the west.
Cold air instability in the wake of a cold front in the Tasman Sea is producing some convective showers over parts of Tasmania. Another trough is triggering some isolated showers and thunderstorms in the northeast of NSW.
