Cloud with isolated thunderstorms over central and southeast parts of WA and
into SA is due to a surface and an upper level trough. Patchy high cloud can be
seen streaming across VIC and the Bass Strait, ahead of the upper level trough.

Low cloud can be seen near the NSW, southern QLD and the southwest WA coasts
with onshore winds.

A high pressure system over southeast Australia extends a ridge over NSW and
Queensland and is maintaining mostly clear skies. Another high in the Indian
Ocean causes clear conditions to prevail over the west coast and adjoining
inland of the continent.
