A trough and associated southeasterly change extends through Hervey Bay and
Fraser Island. This trough connects to a cold front over the Tasman Sea which is
affecting New Zealand. Extensive smoke areas from the northeastern NSW and
southeastern QLD bushfires are visible extending to the east with this front.

The low pressure trough extends over the remainder of northern Australia to the
Central West and South Coastal districts of Western Australia. Areas of cloud
are visible through northern parts of Western Australia with isolated showers
and storms about the Northern Interior. 

Further south, a westerly airstream is bringing extensive stratocumulus cloud to
southern Victoria, Tasmania and the Southern Agricultural Areas of South
Australia. A cold front embedded in the westerly airstream has cleared to the
east of Tasmania. Over the Bight, a high pressure system remains slow moving
with a ridge extending through NSW and central Australia.
