A trough extends across northern Australia producing isolated showers and storms
over the Kimberley region of Western Australia, the Northern Territory's Top End
extending down across southeastern parts, then through northern and central QLD.

Coastal showers and thunderstorms along the Queensland coast are due to a high
pressure system in the Tasman Sea pushing moist ocean air onto land. 

Low level moisture trapped under a ridge of high pressure that extends over
southern parts of the country is responsible for the low level cloud that
blankets the Great Australian Bight and coastal regions of South Australia,
Victoria and Tasmania.
