Isolated thunderstorms are persisting over the Top End and the east tropical
coast of Queensland. Interaction of an upper level trough and a surface trough
has produced patchy cloud and isolated thunderstorms near the southeast and
central coasts of Queensland and also northeastern NSW.

A cloud band with a few embedded thunderstorms extends from the Pilbara region
down to the WA/SA border. Patchy high level cloud is streaming along the jet
stream ahead of this system over central Australia.

Moist onshore flow driven by a high pressure system south of the Bight is
bringing areas of low cloud over southern coasts of SA, VIC and TAS, while
keeping the rest of the country mostly clear.
