A broad area of low pressure extends across northern WA to the NT. This is
generating areas of mid-level cloud with embedded thunderstorms.

A trough from the central QLD coast stretches south to a low complex over the
Tasman Sea. A large well-developed cloud band is evident along the trough. 

Cloud ahead of a cold front is streaming across Tasmania.
