A broad area of low pressure extends across northern Australia causing cloud
with embedded thunderstorms over much of the Northern Territory, as well as
northern and eastern WA, and northern Queensland.

An area of cloud with thunderstorm activity covers northeast New South Wales and
southeast Queensland associated with a surface trough.

The rest of the country remains mostly clear apart from some low cloud in
Tasmania and along the coast of New South Wales.
