In Australia, the aforementioned low pressure system to the northwest of Darwin will usher showers and thunderstorms across the northern coast of the Northern Territory. Darwin can expect intermittent thunderstorms on Thursday with a high of 91(F)/ 32(C). Just to the east of this system, showers and thunderstorms will develop along the northern coasts of Queensland. The remainder of Queensland and New South Wales will stay clear of wet weather due to a ridge of high pressure over the eastern half of Australia. Brisbane will be sunny with a high of 81(F)/ 27(C), while Sydney can expect similar conditions with a high of 83(F)/ 28(C). A trough of low pressure will develop over the southern tier of Western Australia. This system will bring a chance of scattered showers to the southwestern corner of the country.
