Showers and thunderstorms extend over northern Australia to southeast
Queensland. This is due to humid, northeast to northwesterly airstream and
associated low pressure trough.

Further south, a strong cold front is moving through eastern Victoria, New South
Wales and eastern Tasmania, while a secondary cold front is moving through the
Bass Straight. 

Patches of low cloud is evident along the southern coast of Australia in a
southerly onshore flow.

A high pressure ridge lies over southern districts of Western Australia. Another
high pressure ridge across the Tasman Sea and Coral Sea is directing a north to
northeast airstream over eastern Australia.
