Extensive cloud band with embedded thunderstorms extends from the Kimberley
region across the base of the Top End and the southern Gulf of Carpentaria into
the north Qld coast near Cairns. This cloud is associated with an active monsoon
trough across the interior of the continent. 

Clouds associated with onshore trade winds persist along the eastern seaboard,
north of Cape Byron to the monsoonal cloud near Cairns,

A large low pressure trough extends down from the northeastern SA and across
western and central NSW into the eastern half of VIC and is associated with an
extensive band of cloud with embedded thunderstorms affecting much of the land
areas over southeastern Australia.

Moist onshore flow is generating low cloud over the Western TAS, the south coast
of SA and the coastal fringe of the Great Australian Bight. The west coast and
nearby inland areas of WA remain mostly cloud free.
