A trough over the Tasman Sea is producing a large area of thunderstorms off the
coast of southern New South Wales and east of Tasmania.

A front, with a middle level cloud band, is present off the eastern Tasmanian
coast, producing light rain. A mass of speckled cloud extends across southern
Victoria, Tasmania and southern South Australia to the west of the front,
producing some showers.

The next front, with a middle level cloud band can be seen extending from just
off the southwest coast of Western Australia into the Bight.

Onshore flow of moist oceanic air is producing some low cloud and showers in
north Queensland.

The rest of Australia is predominantly free of cloud due to the influence of a
high pressure system over northern South Australia
