A humid and unstable air mass is resulting in extensive shower and thunderstorm
activity across the Kimberley, Top End and northern parts of the Gulf of
Carpentaria. A broad area of low pressure exists over the interior of the
continent with a series of surface troughs triggering showers and thunderstorms.


The high pressure over the Tasman Sea is moving further east. Moist onshore flow
has produced patchy cloud and isolated thunderstorms near the central parts of
Queensland. Middle and high level cloud is evident about the coast of South
Australia, western Victoria and Tasmania while southerly winds are bringing
patchy low cloud to the south coast of Western Australia.
