A low pressure system and trough extend over central Australia and are driving a
widespread rain band over the region with embedded thunderstorms which affects
SA, southern NT and adjacent border areas of southwest QLD and western NSW. Low
cloud with isolated showers along the WA south coast are also driven by the
onshore flow wrapping around the trough and low. 

Another low pressure system sits over the Tasman Sea driving low cloud and cold
stream showers for parts of TAS and eastern VIC.

Elsewhere the rest of the country remains relatively cloud-free.
