A trough of low pressure extends from central Queensland through to the northeast of New South Wales, triggering isolated thunderstorms over central Queensland and northeastern NSW. Further south, a cold front has moved to the east of Tasmania. Areas of active isolated thunderstorms and patchy areas of cloud cover much of Western Australia, and are associated with a broad area of low pressure. Patchy low level cloud covers coastal parts of southern Victoria and Tasmania due to a moist onshore air stream. Remainder of the country remains mostly clear.
