A broad area of low pressure stretches across northern Australia and extends
down western WA to the southwest of the state. This is causing cloud with
isolated thunderstorms in a broad band from the north to the southwest of WA,
over the Top End of the Northern Territory and over Far North Queensland.

Areas of cloud with embedded thunderstorms are visible over parts of eastern New
South Wales and southeastern Queensland and are associated with a trough.
Another trough with a developing low over the Tasman Sea has generated an
extensive cloud band.

The rest of the country remains mostly clear apart from some low cloud in the
Bight extending across to Tasmania and eastern Victoria.
