A weak low at the northwest of Northern Territory, associated with convective
clouds and thunderstorms. 

A developing low at the southeast of Victoria, embedded with convective clouds
and thunderstorms. 

A trough extends from the Kimberley region of Western Australia through the
Gascoyne district to southwest Western Australia. Areas of active cloud and
thunderstorms can be seen near this trough. Areas of active cloud are also seen
over the Top End and in the Gulf of Carpentaria.

Favourable upper level flow and a surface trough has generated a large area of
cloud over Victoria, Tasmania and southern New South Wales, with embedded
thunderstorms east of the trough in New South Wales. 

The rest of the country is mostly cloud free apart from areas of mainly low
level cloud due to the onshore flow along the coastal areas of southern Western
Australia and South Australia, New South Wales and Queensland.
