A trough extends from a weak heat low in the Pilbara generating areas of cloud
and convective activity through to southwest Western Australia. Areas of cloud
and a few thunderstorms are also present near the Cape York Peninsula.

Another low near in the interior of New South Wales is bringing cloud and
convective activity though southern and central New South Wales and southern
Queensland where some vigorous thunderstorms are active at this time.

A low off the eastern coast of Tasmania is generating convective activity
offshore of southern New South Wales through a trough.

Clusters of thunderstorms are randomly scattered about the tropics and will ease
in the next six hours.

The rest of the country is mostly cloud free apart from areas of low level cloud
along Australia's southern and eastern coasts.
