An upper level disturbance is producing middle level cloud and isolated
thunderstorms about the eastern Interior of Western Australia, the southwest
Northern Territory and northwest South Australia. A band of mostly upper level
cloud is crossing southwest Western Australia.

A trough extends from the Bight to a low south of South Australia. This system
is producing middle level cloud over eastern South Australia and western parts
of New South Wales and Victoria.

Another trough over Queensland is generating a broad middle level cloud band
which extends from the northwest to the southeast of the state.

Patches of low cloud over the east coasts of Queensland and New South Wales,
southern Victoria and Tasmania are due to an onshore wind flow.

A low to the northwest of Australia has generated a broad area of cloud and
thunderstorms over ocean waters to the far northwest of Australia.
