An active area of thunderstorms and associated high cloud is present to the east
of a trough throughout much of Queensland. 

A trough extends from a low in northern Western Australia to another low in the
Gascoyne region and then to the southern coastline. Thunderstorms and mid to
high level cloud are present along and to the west of this trough.

A monsoon trough with an embedded low pressure system and associated high level
cloud is positioned to the north of Darwin. 

Low level cloud is present along the coastlines of Victoria and New South Wales
and the western coast of Tasmania due to onshore flow. 

Inland parts of the country are mostly clear due to a ridge of high pressure.
