Convective cloud and thunderstorms are visible across the northern tropics, and
in central NSW extending up to southern QLD, associated with a series of surface
troughs. 

A developing Tropical Low off the northwest WA coast is generating large areas
of mid to high level cloud across northern WA, spreading across inland parts of
the continent.

A cold front east of Tasmania is associated with a large mid to high level cloud
band.

Moist onshore flow is bringing areas of low level cloud to the far southwest WA
coast, northeast NSW and southeast QLD.
