A trough extends from central Australia down through eastern South Australia to
a low over the Great Australian Bight, generating a patchy middle level cloud
band and some isolated thunderstorms.

Over in the west a jetstream is pulling high cloud from over the Indian Ocean to
over central Western Australia.

Patches of low cloud over the east coast of northern Queensland is due to an on
shore wind flow.

A surface trough to the northwest of Australia has generated broad area of
thunderstorms near Indonesia.
