Showers continue along the Queensland and northern NSW coast due to fresh
southeasterly winds. The shower activity is more enhanced along the North
Tropical Coast. Further south, a weak trough off the NSW coast and is triggering
isolated showers and storms. Low cloud and fog patches are also visible about
the NSW ranges.

A band of middle and high level cloud is streaming from the Bight over the
southeast of Australia. Isolated thunderstorms are embedded in the cloud band
about the SA/Vic border. Another cloud band is streaming over the Indian Ocean
with high level cloud drifting over southern distircts of Western Australia. A
series of fronts is visible over the Southern Ocean. Northern parts of Australia
are mostly clear under a ridge of high pressure.
