A trough over the Tasman Sea is producing a large area of thunderstorms off the
coast of southern New South Wales and east of Tasmania.

A front, with a middle level cloud band, is present to the southeast of
Tasmania. A mass of speckled cloud extends across southern Victoria, Tasmania
and southern South Australia to the west of the front, producing some showers.

The next front, with a middle level cloud band can be seen extending from the
southwest coast of Western Australia into the Bight, with further speckled cloud
to the west of this front.

Onshore flow of moist oceanic air is producing some low cloud and showers in
north Queensland.

The rest of Australia is predominantly free of cloud due to the influence of a
high pressure system over northern South Australia
