A surface trough along the New South Wales coast is driving convective showers
and an area of cloud along the coastal fringe of the state.

A weakening cold front is moving off the south coast of Western Australia with
embedded thunderstorms over waters. As associated active trough is approaching
the southwest of the state from the west in the post-frontal flow.

A surface trough towards Christmas Island and an associated upper-level feature
are responsible for a band of cloud across the Pilbara and the interior of
Western Australia.

Subsidence from a near-stationary high over Tasmania is leading to low cloud
across the state.

The remainder of the continent remains mostly cloud free.
