An extensive band of middle and high level cloud, due to the interaction between
a surface trough and an upper level trough, extends from southern Queensland and
northern NSW out over the Tasman Sea, where a surface low is developing.
Isolated thunderstorms are occurring on the northern edge of the cloudband off
the northern NSW coast, and between the trough and a cold front crossing eastern
Victoria and Tasmania. The cloud band is also bringing showers to southern
Queensland and northern NSW.

Isolated thunderstorms are also occurring over Tasmania in the cold unstable
airmass west of the front, with snow expected tonight and tomorrow. Snow showers
are also expected in the Victorian Alps.

Low level cloud over most of Cape York and near the tropical Queensland coast
and along parts of the south coast of SA is due to onshore flows driven by a
ridge of high pressure.

Otherwise skies are mostly clear over northern and western parts of the
continent under the high pressure ridge.
