Thunderstorm activity is increasing across the tropical north of the country, in
central and eastern QLD and northern NSW. A developing tropical low can be seen
northwest of the Pilbara WA.

A surface trough across inland QLD and into eastern NSW has associated
convective development, as does a surface trough down the WA coast.

Cloud from two cold fronts lies west and southwest of Tasmania and an area of
low cloud is over southwest WA.

The remainder of the country is mostly clear due to a ridge of high pressure
over the Great Australian Bight.
