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

High and middle level cloud from the WA southern interior is streaming
southeastward. A strong upper level trough just west of WA is helping to
generate this extensive cloud band.

A band of convective cloud from daytime heating stretches from the Queensland
interior to northeast New South Wales.

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