An upper level trough is dragging tropical moisture from the Indian Ocean across
the northwest of the country, generating a large band of cloud with embedded
thunderstorms mainly over the Pilbara and central desert regions of WA, central
and southern NT, northern SA, central and western Queensland and New South
Wales. 

A low pressure trough extends from western Victoria south to a low in the
Southern Ocean. A cloud band associated with this trough and low covers the much
of Victoria and Tasmania.

A high pressure circulation in the Indian Ocean is driving onshore flow with
associated low level cloud onto the southern coastal areas of WA and SA.

A weak tropical low and an associated trough also lie to the northwest of
Western Australia, generating areas of convective cloud.

Seasonal convective activity generating areas of active cloud and thunderstorms
can be seen over the northern part of the country associated with a trough.

The rest of the country is mostly clear.
