A trough extends north from a low northeast of Kalgoorlie in WA to a low in the
Pilbara region, triggering thunderstorms through the interior of Western
Australia. Another trough stretches southeast from a low over the Cape York
Peninsula to a low off the coast of southeast Queensland. A large band of cloud
with embedded thunderstorms is associated with this trough. 

Thunderstorms are occurring along a trough line extending from northeastern SA
to northern Victoria.

A high to the east Tasmania is driving moist onshore flow along the coastlines
of New South Wales and far eastern Victoria, producing areas of low cloud.

The rest of the continent is mostly cloud free.
