Cloudy conditions persist across northern Australia with thunderstorm activity
occuring over the northern Kimberley, coastal parts of the Top End and the
Peninsula district of Queensland. The monsoon trough is aligned off the
northwest coast of Western Australia extending across to the Timor Sea. High
level cloud is visible over southern Queenland while a trough of low pressure is
triggering isolated showers and thunderstorms over the southern interior of
Western Australia. Southerly winds are bringing areas of low cloud across the
South West Land Division. Clear skies are evident across the southeast of the
country due to firm ridge of high pressure.
