Isolated thunderstorm activity continues over tropical northern parts of the
country.

A cloud band with isolated embedded thunderstorms extends from central WA to
southern South Australia, Victoria and to Tasmania. This is associated with a
surface trough.

Patchy low level cloud along the QLD coast is associated with onshore flow.

Southwest WA and eastern NSW remain relatively cloud-free due to the influence
of a high pressure ridge.
