Patchy middle to high level cloud extends from central WA, through parts of
South Australia, New South Wales and southern Queensland. Isolated thunderstorms
are evident over parts of this area, mainly over central WA and northeast New
South Wales. The cloud is generated by an upper level disturbance.

A developing monsoon trough over northern Australia combined with favourable
moist surface conditions has resulted in enhanced convective activity producing
thunderstorms over the Top End, far north Queensland and a broad area of
northern WA.

A cloud band associated with a cold front is approaching southwest WA. Some low
level cloud is eveident near the southern coast of Australia due to cool onshore

The remainder of the continent is mostly cloud-free due to high pressure ridges.
