The subtropical ridge is keeping southern Australia largely free of cloud, with
high pressure centres in the Great Australian Bight and the Indian Ocean. There
is however some low level moisture trapped under this ridge producing some low
cloud around coastal regions of South Australia, Victoria and Tasmania.

Coastal showers and thunderstorms along the Queensland coast persist due to a
high pressure system in the Tasman Sea continuing to push moist ocean air onto
land.

A trough is moving up the coast of New South Wales and extends across the
Tasman, producing a cloud band over water and some areas of showers and
thunderstorms over land.

A second trough across the north of Australia is producing showers and storms in
the Northern Territory and the northwest of WA.
