A trough extends from the northern parts of the Northern Territory to a shallow
low in the southern Gulf of Carpentaria through Qld to northeast NSW with areas
of cloud and embedded thunderstorms in its vicinity and to the north. Much of
the northern and central parts of Qld is also covered by mainly middle level

A trough extends from the Pilbara and Gascoyne regions of Western Australia
southwards to just off the coast from Perth with areas of cloud and isolated
thunderstorms in its vicinity.

A complex low pressure system over Tasmania and Victoria is generating a large
area of mainly low and middle level cloud over the southeast of the continent
while the associated cold front and its cloud band has now moved to the east of
Tasmania into the Tasman Sea.

Low level cloud can be seen along much of the southern coastline of the country,
associated with onshore flow.

The rest of the country is mostly cloud free.
