A weakening frontal system is slipping to the south of WA while another
approaches the far southwest of the state. A trough over inland parts of WA is
generating a broad area of mostly middle level cloud and a few embedded
thunderstorms.

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