A trough over the Coral Sea is generating convective cloud and thunderstorms
near and over the North Tropical Coast of Qld. 

A cold front crossing the southeastern states is associated with a band of
middle to high level cloud with isolated thunderstorms over the Tasman Sea. A
broad area of speckled low level cloud follows this front.

Moist onshore flow is bringing areas of low level cloud to southern WA, SA and
southwest Vic.

The remainder of the country is mainly cloud free.
