A low pressure trough extends from central NSW through southwest QLD, northeast
SA, the NT and down the WA coast. Areas of mid to high level cloud are
associated with the trough, particularly over southern QLD, northeast NSW and
about central and northern WA.

Thunderstorms are approaching the NT Top End from the northeast.

Areas of cloud can be seen over TAS, associated with a cold front.

The remainder of the continent is mostly cloud free apart from areas of low
cloud about the coastal areas of southwest WA, VIC, NSW and QLD.
