An upper level trough is approaching WA from the southwest and extending a broad
area of mid-high level cloud over southwest parts of the state. Thunderstorms
are developing on a trough lying through central parts of WA and also over
northern coastal parts of the continent. 

Onshore winds are resulting in patchy low cloud over mainly northern and eastern
parts of Queensland. Further south, low cloud extends over western and southern
parts of Tasmania and southern parts of Victoria in a mild onshore flow. Much of
the remainder of the continent is clear due to a stagnant ridge of high
pressure, save for significant smoke areas extending from the east coast of NSW
and southeast Queensland due to active fire areas.
