Showers and thunderstorms continue over northern Australia as well as down
through much of Western Australia and central QLD and are due to a hot, humid,
unstable airmass. 

Across the country's southeast, a low and associated cold front has moved into
the Tasman Sea and will continue to move further away. Active cloud band remains
over eastern Victoria and northeast Tasmania due to this system.

A trough extends from the north, across the central parts of Queensland and
northeast New South Wales and should maintain unstable conditions. Areas of
cloud and a few thunderstorms can be seen along this trough.

A moist onshore flow is generating low cloud along SA's coast as well as over
western VIC and southern parts of WA.
