The embedded thunderstorms off the New South Wales coast are being triggered a
low pressure trough over the Tasman Sea. Patchy low level cloud about the coast
and ranges in Tasmania, Victoria and New South Wales is due to a cool
southwesterly airstream.

A cold front is moving across the Great Australian Bight producing a middle
level cloud band and isolated thunderstorms near South Australia's coast.

Middle to high level cloud can be seen over central Australia and is associated
with an upper level disturbance and strong subtropical jetstream. Isolated
thunderstorms are also being generated within this feature. Further west, a
jetstream is dragging high cloud from over the Indian Ocean towards the west
coast of WA.

In the far north, low to middle level cloud is beginning to build along a weak
trough of low pressure.
