A low in southwest WA is generating some cloud with embedded thunderstorms in
the area. A trough extending from the low through central Australia, and Qld is
bringing some mid level cloud to the region with scattered thunderstorms to the
southeast of Qld. 

A cold front off the NSW coast is connecting to a low in the Tasman Sea. A
southerly airstream behind the cold front is bringing scattered low cloud along
the coastal areas of Vic, Tas and NSW.

A high in the Great Australian Bight is bringing onshore flow along southern
coastal areas of SA generating areas of low cloud.

The rest of the continent is mostly cloud free apart from some patchy cloud
through the tropics.
