A trough extends north from a low over coastal waters to the south of Albany WA
to a low in the Pilbara region. Another trough lies off the Top End coast and
connects to a low moving east over the western coast of Cape York Peninsula and
then southeast across northern QLD to a low off the Fraser coast. Clouds over
inland QLD and western NSW are associated with another trough about the interior
of the continent.

High based thunderstorms are situated over the Goldfields district of WA ahead
of the trough. Showers and thunderstorms can also be seen over the Arafura Sea,
Gulf of Carpentaria, Cape York Peninsula including the Torres Strait, and
through eastern Queensland. A rainband with embedded thunderstorms can also be
seen over southeast QLD and northern NSW. Low level cloud with isolated showers
over the southern and eastern coastline due to onshore flow.

The rest of the continent is mostly cloud free.
