A weakening frontal system is slipping to the south of WA while another is
moving across the far southwest of the state. A trough over inland parts of WA
is generating areas of mostly middle level cloud to its east as well as a few
embedded thunderstorms.

Cloud associated with an upper trough extends from southeastern coastal parts of
Queensland into the Tasman Sea and links to a deep low to the east of Tasmania.
Areas of cloud spiralling around the western flank of the low cover parts of
Tasmania and Victoria.
