A trough in the Pilbara region generates areas of cloud and convective activity
through the Kimberley, Pilbara and into  southern Western Australia.

Isolated storms in the Top End of the Northern Territory are the remnants of
daytime convection there.

Mid level cloud with embedded convective cumulus clouds can be seen in the west
of SA.

A low pressure system in central NSW extends a trough into Qld, with associated
thunderstorm activity seen in NSW and southern Qld.

The rest of the country is mostly cloud free apart from areas of low level cloud
on and east of the southeast ranges.
