A large thunderstorm complex is over the western Kimberley, WA.

High and middle level cloud from the WA southern interior is streaming eastward
to over the Tasman Sea ahead of a cold front near Tasmania. A strong upper level
trough just west of WA is helping to generate this extensive cloud band.

Thunderstorm activity continues over the tropical north of the country
especially near the Gulf of Carpentaria.
