A broad area of low pressure extends from southwest WA to the Northern Territory and then down to southern Queensland and northeastern NSW. This is generating an extensive cloud band, with embedded thunderstorms. While a middle to high level cloud band, associated with a jetstream, extends across the Tasman Sea towards New Zealand.
Cool southwesterly winds are resulting in areas of low cloud over much of Tasmania and near the south coast of Victoria, South Australia and New South Wales.
