A low pressure system has moved offshore of New South Wales, but continues to
drive onshore cloud along the coast, with plenty of lower level cloud further
west over central parts of that state, Victoria and eastern South Australia
producing showers. Thunderstorms can be seen over parts of south east
Queensland. A cold front connected to this low is producing embedded
thunderstorms over the Tasman Sea, pushing rain over Tasmania.

A strong cold front is approaching the West Australian coast, with a large mass
of higher-level cloud with embedded thunderstorms ahead of the system. A deep
low pressure system lies off the south west coast.

Patchy cloud for the Top End and remaining parts of eastern Queensland
associated with surface troughs. The interior of the country remains cloud-free.
