Issued at 5:27 am EST Saturday on 20 September 2014

Cool southwesterly winds are resulting in areas of low cloud over southern Victoria and Tasmania. Cloud assocaited with a trough is triggering isolated showers and thunderstorms off the southern Queensland coast. Patchy middle and high level cloud is evident through Pastoral districts of South Australia due to an upper level trough.

Generally clear conditions through Western Australia and across the north of the country although some patchy high cloud is streaming across far north Queensland.
