A trough and associated southeasterly change now extends through Hervey Bay and
Fraser Island. This trough connects to a cold front over the Tasman Sea which is
affecting New Zealand. Extensive smoke areas from the northeastern NSW and
southeastern QLD bushfires are visible extending to the east.

A low pressure trough extends over the northern interior of Australia. Areas of
cloud are visible through inland Western Australia with isolated showers and
storms about the Gascoyne. Isolated storms are evident over the Central
Highlands and Coalfields and Capricornia districts of Queensland.

Further south, a westerly airstream is bringing extensive stratocumulus cloud to
southern Victoria, Tasmania and the Southern Agricultural Areas of South
Australia. A cold front embedded in the westerly airstream has cleared to the
east of Tasmania. Over the Bight, a high pressure system remains slow moving
with a ridge extending through NSW and central Australia.
