Low clouds associated with a surface trough along the New South Wales coast is
responsible for the persistent showers the coastal fringe eastern seaboard from
the NSW/VIC border north to the central Queensland coast.

A weakening cold front is moving off the south coast of Western Australia with
embedded thunderstorms over waters. A second, more vigorous, front is moving
over the coast of southern WA affecting Perth and nearby rural communities. A
severe weather Warning for locally destructive winds and heavy rain is in force
for land areas south of Geraldton and west of Hopetoun.

A surface trough towards Christmas Island and an associated upper-level feature
are responsible for a band of cloud across the Pilbara and the interior of
Western Australia.

Subsidence from a near-stationary high over Tasmania is leading to low cloud
across the state.

The remainder of the continent remains mostly cloud free.
