A weakening low pressure system is located off the central west coast of Western
Australia, producing isolated thunderstorms and a small mass of middle level
cloud.

A thin middle level cloud band extends from northwestern WA across South
Australia and into New South Wales, associated with a middle level trough.

A cold front is stalling over coastal parts of Victoria and extends across the
Tasman Sea. The coldest air behind the frontal system now lies over and to the
southeast of Tasmania, represented by the cellular cloud with occasional
thunderstorm activity.

Patchy low level cloud extends into the central and tropical Queensland coasts
as well as western Tasmania within onshore flows, generated by a high over
Queensland. Skies are clear over the remainder of QLD and the Northern Territory
due the associated ridge of high pressure.
